re: Is DRM malicious code? VIEW POST


Is it malware? I don’t think so. Malware is software that acts with malicious intent, which DRM does not (Most of the time, that is).

Does it go too far? Sometimes. I once found 2 DRM systems on my friend’s computer that would start at boot.

Would I rather want it gone? Absolutely. But if it’s gone, people will just start pirating content more. Unfortunately, we are all forced to suffer the consequences of the actions those people take, since DRM can’t just only be enabled for pirates, because there’s no way of knowing who’s a pirate, and who’s not.
