Anti-DRM demonstrations at Apple Stores

A site by the name of DefectiveByDesign.org has organized a series of anti-DRM demonstrations at Apple retail stores across the U.S. today. They aim to educate Apple Store visitors about the dangers inherent in DRM, such as being locked into one file format and device, the inability to pass along or share these songs (I guess they haven't found the 'burn' button in iTunes yet), and Apple's now-legendary crack-down on any significant 3rd party who tries to mess with the iTMS + iPod ecosystem by adding features or allowing the iPod to work with other content systems (think: the Real/Rhapsody debacle).

DefectiveByDesign reminds attendees of these events to bring their cameras, so we'll be sure to keep our ears open for any news on how well these demonstrations fair.
