October 3rd is the Day against DRM - you can even get free stickers in advance of demos in London and New York.

It's quite timely seeing as Microsoft's answer to the iPod has built in DRM, so you can wirelessly transfer music to another player but only play it three times or within three days - even if it has a creative commons license - ie. the artist doesn't mind it being shared freely and/or doesn't have anywhere online that people can buy it. Typical of Microsoft to collaborate with the music industry fatcats in trying to maintain their outdated stranglehold on music distribution. I think it's already making the Zune very uncool... but then I think iPods became very uncool very quickly
