Valenti DRM Metaphor Watch


From the article referenced in the next item:

“We need to put in speed bumps to keep people honest,” said Jack Valenti, the president of the Motion Picture Association of America, which is lobbying federal regulators to require many devices to incorporate technology that prevents consumers from sending digital media files over the Internet. “If we don’t, our future is bleak.”

All right-thinking people like speed bumps – they keep children from getting run over.  Is that what DRM systems are like?
