And what ax is he grinding? You accuse him of being biased, but don't specify how. The only "bias" I see in the article is the desire to be able to use video and sound hardware to its full capabilities without having it randomly disabled by Vista, buggy drivers, and sunspots. Or perhaps you see his opinion that maybe, just maybe, our hardware and software ought to serve us, rather than be slaved to the desires of "content providers" (of course, if you make your own content, that's not protected...)
Peter Gutmann is a pretty smart guy, with a *lot* of experience with cryptology and various DRM systems (check some of the other papers on his site). I think he might be "biased" in favor of systems that stand a chance of working without being an unreasonable burden on implementors and users.
