Is DRM Doing More Harm Than Good?

June 1, 2009 at 3:31 pm Leave a comment

According to a recent report, conducted in Cambridge University by Prof. Patricia Akester and entitled “Technological accommodation of conflicts between freedom of expression and DRM: the first empirical assessment,” Digital Rights Management (DRM) may actually be causing people to turn to piracy.
Now, DRM is pretty much a collection of programs that control how internet content is being used. What this never-before conducted survey points out is that, due to stringent DRM restrictions, people who try to download content legally often have a hard time doing so. Basically they’ll run into walls and have to go through loops just to get certain media. So obviously, what they’ll tend to do next is go look for the pirated versions of the media that they want.
But downloading content legally doesn’t have to be so hard – or so expensive. In fact, with the recent trend toward ad-supported media, you can download content completely for free without being a pirate. Here at MyMojo, we offer ringtones, games, and music for free, and you don’t have to jump through hoops to get it. Check it out for some great free content, without that dirty piratey feeling!
