Portugal Passes Legislation to Restrict DRM


#1

Since 2004, Portuguese citizens have not been allowed to circumvent DRM placed on creative works. This is about to change, as legislation has been approved which restricts the use of DRM on any creative works in the public domain or produced by public entities. This new bill will allow decryption and copying of other works as well.

As long as it uses common sense I think it will work. But lacking that and it will be circumvented by 3rd parties no matter what. DRM just insure people will crack DRM and put it out there in the wild.
