Join the FSF in calling on libraries to eliminate DRM
Join the Free Software Foundation and DefectiveByDesign.org this Saturday (2/9/2008) at the Boston Public Library to demand that they remove DRM technology from their collection! You may remember that two years ago we sent a letter to the Boston Public Library. This time around we are taking a more direct approach, by reaching out the public, and handing out flyers about DRM to concerned patrons. We will be gathering outside the entrance at the main branch of the Boston Public Library (700 Boylston St., Boston MA 02116) from 1pm until 3pm on Saturday, February 9th, 2008.
We encourage those who cannot take part in the action at the Boston Public Library to see if their local library has DRM technology infecting its collection, and to take action if it does. DefectiveByDesign.org has provided a customizable flyer for individuals wishing to hold their own action.
If you are interested in finding out about DefectiveByDesign.org events, news, and information, or you wish to join the effort in eliminating DRM, we encourage you to join the campaign today.
