Cory Doctorow's talk on how DRM gives distributers control over  
publishers and writers:

> Here's a talk I gave earlier this year at the O'Reilly Tools of  
> Change for Publishing conference in NYC, about the way that DRM  
> gives distributors control over publishers and writers. This talk  
> went down very well, and is the source of "Doctorow's Law," which a  
> lot of people have asked me about:

> "Any time someone puts a lock on something you own, against your  
> wishes, and doesn't give you the key, it's not being done to your  
> benefit."
