We are a participatory and grassroots campaign exposing DRM-encumbered devices and media for what they really are: Defective By Design. We are working together to eliminate DRM as a threat to innovation in media, the privacy of readers, and freedom for computer users. Our actions involve identifying and targeting defective products, pressuring media retailers and hardware manufacturers to stop supporting DRM, exposing the immense concentration of power over media created by DRM, and raising awareness of DRM to libraries, schools, and individuals around the world.

This LibrePlanet group is the organizing hub for actions and events.
