I've been doing student congress with a bill that gets rid of the anti-circumvention clause of the DMCA, meaning you would be allowed to circumvent DRM. Of course it's a pretty technical bill, so there's always a pretty limited number of speeches for it.

So what are your thoughts? Any defenses for DRM, other angles on the issue, or just any ideas on DRM and the DMCA in general?

DRM has never really been able to support anti-piracy, due to the fact that it puts limits on actually buyers, whereas piraters get free realm.
Examples: iTunes and Ubisoft.

Drm is in place BECAUSE of piracy. It is not justification to pirate.

"Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."
