Nutritional Facts-style DRM

31 03 2009

Over on Ars Technica, there’s an article about The Entertainment Consumers Association. Their stance on DRM is the following:

1. Digital Rights Management needs to be disclosed on the box.
2. End User Licensing Agreements need to be simple and standardized.

“We suggested a few things to the FTC, one of which was we’d like to see DRM disclosed,” Halpin started. “So when people go to the store and buy the packaged good, the PC game, they’ll see something on the front of the box saying there is DRM inside, and to what degree it will be invasive.” (From Ars Technica article)

Personally, I feel this is a step in the right direction (though, having NO DRM would suit me fine).
