  "In her ruling Friday, U.S. District Judge Susan
  Illston said people who listen to a public broadcast
  are entitled to use excerpts for purposes of comment
  and criticism."

Of course, if the comment and criticism had used a
circumvented copy of a DRM-restricted work, no such
exception applies.

Anyone got an example of a straight-up _political
speaker_ who's using a DRM-restricted format, and
a comment on or criticism of that speaker?
