A DRMerry New Year

Posted on Friday, January 04 2008 @ 06:00:55 CET by

Bit Tech has just published an editorial that looks back at the year of the People vs. the RIAA titled "A DRMerry Year":
Wow, we made it. It's been another wild year full of technology battles, format wars, and even some good old go-for-the-throat company fights. And yet, the world goes on, the beat of technology thumping at its usual pace. Intel and AMD, Nvidia and ATI/AMD, Blu-ray and HD-DVD.

With the holiday seasons over and no major operating system release on the immediate horizon, the companies can go lick their wounds and ready their teams for 2008. Minus a few dollars or people that traded hands, they will be relatively unchanged - the new year will be as the last, with a couple big launches, some good ideas and bad ones, and a bunch of marketing BS and drivel for our entertainment.

But one thing HAS changed - one war has actually seen lines move, ground shift. It is a war where each skirmish is close to all of our hearts, and we're on the losing side. It's the RIAA vs. the People - and, for 2007 at least, I think we came out behind.
