First, some good uses for DRM:
- Apple's Music store - I am a happy customer and the DRM seems fair.
- Some movies distributed on the Open Media Network require obtaining a free DRM access cookie from the publisher - why not? Most material on the OMN don't seem to use DRM, but I have enjoyed watching several Indy films that required a DRM cookie.
- Proposed PC hardware/bios changes that might make it impossible to install Linux.
