Hacking Digital Rights Management

"Like a creeping fog, DRM smothers more and more media in its clammy embrace, but the sun still shines down on isolated patches of the landscape."

This is a very nice summary of the cat and mouse game. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that I'm glad that DRM gets cracked. The reason? Because while major works will always be preserved and moved to new formats, lesser, but still worthwhile works will not. If the DRM is not cracked these works may be lost. I also like the fact that it shows that encumbering us with DRM only hurts the legitimate consumer.
