Every BBC licence payer who cares about DRM and/or Free Software should pay attention to their current public consultation and offer feedback.

They have concluded that despite the fact that their content is currently broadcast free-to-air through terrestrial and satellite services, they must inflict gratuitous DRM upon its users when they access it over the Internet.

Furthermore, they conclude that in order to achieve this goal they must mandate the use of recent versions of Windows and its Media Player. Users of any other systems are to be excluded.

My own response to this is partially shown in an Advogato article, and others have commented elsewhere.
