How do I keep getting sucked into arguments about intellectual property? I don't care! I don't care what you think, and I don't care whether you agree with what I think! Why can I not stop picking at that scab? I really should just adopt kalischild's universal explanation: "that's bullshit." I know that I should do this, but I don't. This is a personal failing.
PS: I bite my nails, too.

Apple: Burn DVDs--and we'll burn you
Company makes a patch to allow Apple's iDVD to interoperate with non-Apple-provided DVD drives. Apple invokes DMCA, claiming this "violates their intellectual property."
Presumably because they had to reverse engineer iDVD to make it work, which is now thoughtcrime. But really because Apple wants to use DVDs as the hook to sell new machines, so you'll buy a whole new machine instead of just a drive.
