Here's a thought. How about the hardware makers turn around and say "fuck you, shove your certification up your collective ass."
That never works. There'll always be one company who sees the opportunity in cooperating and capturing the market. Like Google and Chinese censorship. Google could probably live without the Chinese market except for the fact that somebody else would swoop in and the Chinese money behind them would make them a HUGE competitor.

Every day it seems we see new regulations plugging holes, cutting off options, closing loopholes. It's getting ridiculous (and I thought the Republican Congress and Administration were *against* regulation). I mean ridiculous in that there are so many damn holes to plug and there are probably a whole lot more left out there to go after. This can't possibly work. It's going to collapse eventually under all the weight and complexity. DRM will be cracked, blackmarket hardware will flourish--it'll be like the days of prohibition. Maybe the mob will get involved.

I predict the first entertainment companies to see the light and dump all this bullshit will make a killing.
