I was listening to the RadioNZ's podcat on Pirate music and how the law's transforming and thought,
Will DSE soon be breaking the law by selling anti-DRM hardware?

Whats next... MPAA? gouging peoples eyes in case they remember what was shown and breaks 'DRM' by telling a friend? 
RIAA doing the same but with ears?

It would be impossible to make such things illegal, they come with thing like LCDs with internal speakers, they're easy to make and there are so many out there!

Ok, so stealing / pirating things is bad: yes. But can we get a few murders and the like imprisoned before we arrest people for listening to music? Tongue out

erasing peoples memories would be too hard, they will simply start charging people for watching movies and listening to music, but
not _actually_ let them see them and hear them. that makes for total protection of copyright.
