ZDNET video rant calling for a boycott of DRM

I know if this is on Digg probably everyone's seen it, but this is the best explanation of DRM I've ever seen. Here's the biggest irony of all. This anti-DRM rant is delivered to you via DRM protected Windows Media Player. That said, this finally breaks down the DRM issue in terms everyone can understand. It's 100% absofuckinglutely on the money. Enjoy.

ZDNet Executive Editor David Berlind suggests that CRAP or Content, Restriction, Annulment, and Protection, is a catchier phrase than DRM - Digital Rights Management. Why does he think this technology is crap? Once you've bought music or other content to play on one device, it won't play on any other device because of the proprietary layer of CRAP.
