Frankly, I don't care about your points because I don't care about DRM in regards to my initial comment, "Just a thought." I am annoyed by the whole DRM validity discussion. It's irrelevant to the the Slashdot post and my comment. Mention DRM to me and I just roll my eyes...
You don't have any digital Fair Use rights because digital content is not mentioned in the Fair Use ruling. Fair Use is thrown out in digital media cases. Circumventing DRM violates the usage contract you have with the media distributor and or copyright holder. When you buy a CD or DVD, you own the plastic - not the content.
"As long as purchasing media requires me to risk prison time in order to use said legitimately purchased media, I won't be buying."
Great. But that means you cannot pirate either.
