iPad DRM endangers our rights

The Free Software Foundation guys are ready to remind us the real threat that iPad furthers:

The iPad’s unprecedented use of DRM to control all capabilities of a general purpose computer is a dangerous step backward for computing and for media distribution.

Yesterday a group of FSF volunteers set up “Apple Restriction Zones” along the approaches to the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, informing journalists of the rights they would have to give up to Apple before proceeding inside.

Well done guys and thanks. Join FSF today.
