Petition against DRM'd music

One metal magazine out of Sweden has set up a petition against DRM watermarks in music, showing yet another music side of the market - the reviewers.

The entire concept of DRM is inherently broken. It simply doesn't work. The only people that suffer ill-effects from these techniques are those who actually obey the law and aren't committing any wrongful acts. The internet pirates laugh at it and aren't noticably put off by it. DRM is only punishing the people buying and reviewing the records and thus is completely pointless and needs to stop!
