Copyright Pandering

The thing is... Neither law enforcement nor the legal system is ever required to provide protection towards or for anything or anyone.

Ultimately (in the U.S.A. anyway) protection is a personal responsibility.

Hopefully the courts begin to espouse this edict to those IP holders who insist the court protect them from their own shortcomings.

After all, the courts did not force the IP holder to produce a product that is apparently an easy target for theft / piracy.

For the same reason that it is not the courts responsibility to keep thieves from walking in to a house that has no doors. DRM is not the door.... It is a drape thrown over the opening that is swept away when the wind picks up.
