'fraid it is.

Worse than that, over here in France it's about to become illegal to
even discuss techniques allowing the circumvention of copy protection
systems, which is why I had to give up my howto pages and hand them over
to someone else (they describe how to rip audio CDs and DVD-Videos).


While I understand the principles behind DRM, the whole thing has
gotten completely out of hand. It's the media companies who are writing
our laws now.

How doth the VAX's C compiler        How patiently it seems to run
Improve its object code.             And spit out error flags,
And even as we speak does it         While users, with frustration, all
Increase the system load.            Tear their clothes to rags.
