Submission + - HBO Exec: don't call it DRM, call it DCE!

But we stupid consumers cannot figure that out because of that nefarious name. I am so glad they are going to clear up that misunderstanding with a name change. The old "Call a thorn a rose and not only will it smell sweet but we won't notice being pricked" ploy eh? Clever. Le DRM est mort, vive le DCE!
