A note on sharing sites: We recommend the and reddit social sharing sites because they follow ethical guidelines and respect their users. Other popular sites for sharing news like Twitter and Facebook are a problem for technology users -- they are set up to lock users to their services and deny them basic privacy and autonomy. But it's important that we let people everywhere know about the dangers of DRM, so if you have an account on these sites, please help spread the word on those sites too. (But don't let sharing important news about DRM lead to further use of such sites.) To people posting links: Facebook and Twitter links are fine, but please post sharing links to and reddit too.
