Electronic Arts’ Online Battle Over DRM

10 12 2008

A battle has long been underway in the virtual world; rights holders such as video game producer Electronic Arts (EA) want to protect their proprietary software to the greatest extent possible while end-users playing the games often find the means of protection, commonly known as Digital Rights Management (DRM) to be overly restrictive. DRM allows the producer to “control in detail what can and cannot be done” with a particular copy of a work, such as the encryption devices that make it difficult to copy DVDs or the number of copies a user can make when purchasing a song from the iTunes store.
