Another proof that DRM systems cannot work

If you can listen, you can record. A computer is a wonderful piece of equipment made to rearrange bits and bytes. Somebody selling DRM-"protected" music has to provide content and keys to the potential attacker. That's why these systems will never work and this is the reason for ridiculous laws like DMCA - a law that fixes technology that doesn't work that was invented because record companies fail to adapt their business case to new technology. Sigh.

PowerPizza

LOL; that is a very nice idea; wouldn't it be great if the boxes were recycled ones? I don't really like my pizzas come in boxes, because they always taste like the box...
