Deluded jackass

Yee ha. I'm a deluded jackass and a hippie.

What, not a Communist?

This is why DRMers are so doubleplusunfun to argue with. Say that it's a bad idea to have a machine micro-managing your communications, and bang! you're against all copyright. AND YOU SMELL! Yawn.

I like copyright. Good copyright is a good balance. Anticircumvention-backed DRM is such a bad idea that anyone who wants to defend it has to sling some "you're a hippie" talk around, then argue about something else.

I guess Prof. Lessig gets this kind of stuff all the time.
