Hmm... secure boot-like technologies certainly can play into the copyright maximalist agenda. It's not really a DRM technology, though, it's more of a general control technology — who has control over the systems we think we own? I believe the folks working on making Linux work in the secure environment are doing their best to ensure that the owners have control over their own systems. Secure boot can be used to do unpleasant things; it can also (at least try to) protect your system against the next Sony-style rootkit.
