"I pledge to not waste money on CDs that are deliberately defective."

Pledge to never purchase a CD containing any form of Digital Rights Management (DRM)

DRM severely restricts our rights as users, creators, and members of the global community. We will not stand by and let fair use grow extinct as a consequence of poorly thought out technology and the laws that support it.

Like Boing-Boing's Cory Doctorow says, "This is a no-brainer: buy crippleware CDs? Get a rootkit? Spyware? An "agreement" that you didn't know you agreed to until you open the package and find a slip of paper telling you you're not allowed to play the disc in your car or laptop?
"It's just common sense: don't buy CDs that treat you like a crook and attack your computers and privacy."
