DRM video

Thanks to our friends North of the border for sharing the following short video on DRM. It would be interesting to see an update in the context of Amazon's recent efforts on the Kindle that keeps tracks of what people highlight in texts and allows them to be shared. What's next? Our private notes that we put in the margins? Absent of context, how could this information be used against consumers of digital media. The advantage is all to the individuals or organizations that control the delivery platform and the DRM -- As the video below notes, it kind of makes for a scary future in an Orwellian kind of way.
