'Where's my rights as a consumer?'

Was that a rhetorical question or not?
FYI - Half the point of DRM is to revoke rights the courts have already granted you as a consumer in the past, as much as it is to 'protect' the company's rights. God forbid you should actually make a copy for your own use elsewhere or to protect your original investment, or watch your 'purchase' (and I use that term loosely - your EULA probably dictates you're really only leasing that content indefinitely) on an unapproved, uncertified system. :)

You as a consumer have the right to purchase a product.

You have the right to use said product, as long as it doesn't violate copywrite laws, which include duplication and/or modification of the product.


DRM is not a deterrent if you know where to get a good stripper, so don't worry. And no, I don't mean go to a club instead of watching the DRM protected content.....
