Does DRM and anti-circumvention legislation increase unauthorized P2P?
IT World Canada
Russell McOrmond doubts DRM will make a dent in P2P file sharing. In fact, he’s predicting the opposite.

“The USA DMCA was signed into law on Oct. 28, 1998, and nearly a decade later every report I see suggests that unauthorized P2P sharing of copyrighted files is on the rise in the United States. While this will come as a shock to people who thought the DMCA would (or think the Canadian Bill C-61 will) decrease copyright infringement, the increase seems very logical to me.”
