User Friendly comic shows us how to defeat Apple’s DRM scheme using a high-tech toolkit:
It’s funny because it’s true. The thing about DRM is that it can never be effective. If you can listen to it or watch it, you can copy it. The only way you can circumvent this is by implanting everyone with encryption chips and pipe the data directly into their brains… And even then, someone is bound to invent a device that will collect the signal based on your electromagnetic brain activity when it leaves the chip. DRM will never, ever work. No matter how effective and hard to break you make it – at some point you must transmit the data in plaintext – otherwise we can’t watch or hear it. And that’s where we can collect it and copy it.
