“My personal favorite part of the survey continues to be the last optional question: define DRM in your own words. 61% answered, 80% of them with a genuine–or attempted–definition. 17% of those who did answer admitted that they had no idea. (My favorite of the non-definitions was “doodle rat muffin.”) The answers are definitely worth taking a look through, as they betray a wide range of emotional responses to digital rights management, as well as confusion on who controls it and whom it is supposed to benefit.”

Dammit, I didn’t know she’d use my answer to what DRM means verbatim?!
