Day Against DRM: May 4th

April 5, 2011

Wednesday May 4, 2011 will be the third annual international Day Against DRM.  I know you want to participate *grin*

You can currently sign up for a mailing list to get involved with Day Against DRM and a wiki was recently started too. According to the Defective by Design website:

The Day Against DRM is an opportunity to unite a wide range of projects, public interest organizations, web sites and individuals in an effort to raise public awareness to the danger of technology that requires users to give-up control of their computers or that restricts access to digital data and media. This year, we’ll be helping individuals and groups work together to create local actions in their communities — actions will range from protesting an unfriendly hardware vendor to handing out informative fliers at local public libraries!

I love it! I’ve signed up and am thinking about how my library could participate in this effort. What can you do?
