Norway to put its TV and radio online

Norway has decided to put a lot of TV and Radio (public channels) online. This could have been a great project, but the government of Norway decided to put all the content through Microsoft DRM. Thus giving Microsoft control over who can play the content, where and on what devices.

Boingboing‘s Cory did a nice analysis on the topic, which got flamed by a Microsoft employee. It makes for a very good read. The best arguments against DRM can be found in the reaction by the Microsoft employee.
