One reply on “Why DRM won’t ever work”

  1. While the article is correct that DRM on things like HD-DVDs and DVDs are fundamentally flawed. DRM the way apple does it will work. If the hardware plays along, and the private keys are hidden from the user, suddenly it becomes possible for a workable DRM system. If it takes an electron microscope to figure out your private key, normal humans aren’t going to be breaking the encryption. I get a little afraid whenever I read an article like this, because I think geeks aren’t riled up about the issue because they believe it’s technically unfeasible. “Trustworthy Computing” is the first well thought out DRM technology I’ve ever seen, and given the state of computing currently, it would only take a couple companies collaborating to make it happen.
