EU Commission launches next stage of DRM consultation

The European Commission has launched the next stage of the Digital Restrictions Management consultation. In this stage, the current proposal has been published and is open to comments from all stakeholders until February 29th, 2008.

The time for these measures appears particularly badly chosen, especially in the light of the fact that the big producers, such as Sony BMG or Warner Music, have recently decided that there is no added value in the use of DRM in copyright protection, and no longer DRM protect their media. Under these circumstances, the entire process should be questioned again before pointless measures are taken.
