Snarky Post of the Week: DRM Rocks

Thanks to Job's "Thoughts on Music" (aka Declaration of DRM Indepdence), the CEO of Macrovision has opened is mouth and inserted hs foot, singing the joys of DRM. You can imagine how the blogosphere responded, unfavorably to say the least.
So this installment of Snarky post of the Week is for Cory Doctorow and his well-reasoned distate of DRM: a PR-to-English translation of the Macrovision CEO's letter responding to Steve Jobs:

"I would like to start by thanking Steve Jobs for offering his   provocative perspective on the role of digital rights management   (DRM) in the electronic content marketplace and for bringing to the   forefront an issue of great importance to both the industry and   consumers." --> F*ck you, Jobs.

"DRM increases not decreases consumer value"-->Up is down. Black is white. (Daring Fireball)
