Digital Restrictions Management (DRM) is an epidemic spreading across the Web, infiltrating our homes, classrooms, workplaces, and just about everywhere else we go. Tools, technologies, books, games, movies, and music are coming to us locked down with DRM -- whether they are streaming or claim to be locally hosted.
For 12 years, we've celebrated International Day Against DRM (IDAD) -- making, organizing, protesting, and taking action to support the demolition of DRM -- and 2018 is no different! This year we will continue the fight against DRM and celebrate the work of activists, artists, and technologists who create DRM-free media and technology. You can read more about past IDADs online.
For IDAD 2018, we want to demonstrate how great life without DRM can be -- and how pervasive DRM is. Join the Defective by Design coalition this Tuesday, September 18th as we go a day without using DRM.
Join us and challenge yourself and those around you to a Day Without DRM.
Whether you're going the whole day DRM free or swapping out your nightly Netflix for something DRM-free and locally hosted, we want to hear from you. By joining with others on the same day, we send a powerful message: DRM's days are numbered.
