The Null Device

Shit. It looks like the EU is about to legislate for mandatory DRM technology in all digital devices. Wonder if they follow through when they realise that it is impossible to add copy-denial to an open-source OS, and that mandating DRM technologies will restrict the use of open-source (read: non-Microsoft) operating systems, essentially enforcing an expensive dependency on a foreign software monopoly.
