I'm from Denmark and I'm quite used to consumer protection laws that cannot be circumvented by contract, it's good to see that the ombudsmen are waking up to the dangers of DRM.
I've read some comments about this (mainly from americans) that go something like this: "If you don't like the deal, don't take it", what they fail to realize is that we have consumer protection laws that:
1) Forbid unreasonable and misleading terms.
2) Forbid circumventing the law, even by contract.
#2 means that no matter what you do you can never lose your consumer rights, even if you sign a contract waiving those rights.
