> I fully believe that DRM is NOT an abusive use of any technology or of the general public.
I'm really not big on conspiracy theories, but you'll have to admit that by shifting the trust from the user to the software or device, the "who can do what" shifted with it as well. Sure, there are good uses of DRM, as people pointed out - like in medical and safety equipment etc. But claiming that technology cannot be abused in factually untrue.
> DRM is a problem manufactured by the FSF
A think a more accurate statement would be that FSF pointed out to some potential problems with the use of DRM technologies.
