"Tuesday May 4 has been named as this year's Day against Digital Rights Management (DRM) by the President of the Free Software Foundation.

"DRM is a technology used with digital files that are copyrighted to ensure than can not be copied to other devices.

"Richard Stallman said the day was designed to "raise public awareness to the danger of technology that restricts users' access to movies, music, literature and software; indeed, all forms of digital data".

""Its [DRM] means is to force you to use proprietary software, which means you don't control what it does. When companies organise to design products to restrict us, we have to organise to defeat them."
