An Open Letter to Microsoft - Why you shouldn't kill FairUse4WM - Engadget


Endgadget has posted an open letter to Microsoft explaining why they should not fix the security problems with it's PlasForSure DRM. Quote:

"We know that you're already probably working to fix the, um, hole that's been discovered in Windows DRM 10/11, but we're going to ask you this anyway: please don't stop consumers from using FairUse4WM to remove copy protection from music they've downloaded.

We understand why you put DRM on these files in the first place ? the major labels won't grant you (or rather the companies that are using your DRM) a license to sell their music without it ? but there are some good reasons why you should let this one slide."

The letter covers many good points about the DRM and PlaysForSure services and the problems people have been having with DRM in general not just Microsoft's DRM. Read the letter here: An Open Letter to Microsoft - Why you shouldn't kill FairUse4WM - Engadget
