Resist the Tower! Fight Media Power!


Consumer's Union put out another clever movie highlighting the growing media hegemony in the U.S. I'm not personally so concerned with media consolidation, but what bothers me is the way media companies throw their weight around to enact DRM that makes for lousy products and loss of freedom. I don't pirate anything, why do I need DRM in my products? I don't want to have to buy a different copy of every song I like to play on my phone, versus my stereo, versus my computer. Consumer's Union isn't directly addressing this issue with this campaign, but it is more than peripherally related.
