It certainly uses features that mirror what is used in DRM, but it's goal/purpose is different.
This feature is basically "the hardware doesn't run the code if it's not signed". Which is good, when it disables working around the anti-theft code in the OLPC, but which is bad, when disables creating graphics card drivers that dump their output into a file (to copy a DVD, etc.).
