+ - DefectiveByDesign open letter to Steve Jobs

SanityInAnarchy writes: "We all remember Steve Jobs' blog entry calling for a world without DRM. DefectiveByDesign is sending him an open letter suggesting that he show us how serious he is. From the article:

You can set the ethical example and be the first "major" to drop DRM, by freeing independent artists.... You can set the example in the arena of video and movies. Disney can be the first "major" to drop DRM. You have the direct power to do this.
You can sign the letter as a petition. Their goal is 1000 signatures by April 1."

Getting the job done is no excuse for not following the rules. Corollary: Following the rules will not get the job done.

Working...
