Hey Corporations: We Loath DRM

Even as we see another victory scored against the kitten-killing DRM monster, Adobe takes a giant leap backward and proposes putting DRM into Flash. I don't understand why big companies refuse to see the light when it comes to DRM. If companies would open their eyes to the headache consumers experience when they try to use DRM-encumbered devices, they would see that it's hurting their businesses by alienating consumers. Someday, the madness will stop, and companies will realize that people don't want to be thieves; people just want things delivered and consumed in the most convenient way possible. (Hint: DRM doesn't fit the bill.)
