In further news about the continuing effort to dupe people into believing that crippling hindrances to their free will are actually good for them, HBO had proposed changing the name of DRM. Perfect! Of course, Digital Consumer Enablement is a much more accurate term than Digital Rights Management. “Enable” means almost the same thing as “restriction”, right? Perfectly logical.

I wonder if this works in other areas? If you’re planning to be in the same room with Bob Zitter I recommend bringing a pillowcase full of doorknobs and knocking him silly with it. Because obviously “heavy sack beating” isn’t the right way to describe the event, it’s more accurately captured by the term “Content Provider Attitude Realignment”. I just don’t want to use the term “heavy sack beating” any more, and obviously this opens up new applications with content providers in other areas as well.
