The Battle for Your Digital Media Devices

With so many tech mandate proposals and DRM restrictions being introduced, it's all too easy to miss how they fit together. A digital radio mandate here, an analog hole plug there, add in a little HDCP on video outputs for bad measure, and so on -- pretty soon, you've got DRM everywhere, and the whole is far more dangerous than the sum of its parts.

EFF is fighting DRM wherever it rears its ugly head, and our new page, The Battle for Your Digital Media Devices, introduces the major fronts. We've also launched a page about digital video, describing the alphabet soup of restrictions that Hollywood wants injected into your devices.

Check out these resources, and join the fight through our Action Center and by donating to EFF.
