Day Against DRM - May 3rd, 2013
The Day Against DRM is an opportunity to unite a wide range of projects, public interest organizations, web sites and individuals in an effort to raise public awareness to the danger of technology that requires users to give-up control of their computers or that restricts access to digital data and media. This year, we'll be helping individuals and groups work together to create local actions in their communities â€” actions will range from protesting an unfriendly hardware vendor to handing out informative fliers at local public libraries!
