Joining the hip new Jobs-led crowd of anti-DRM executives, HBO’s Chief Technology Officer, Bob Zitter, said in a panel last week “I don’t want to use the term DRM any longer”. Which is great, except that he doesn’t want to get rid of the technologies that break your computer and stop you from copying your own stuff. He just wants to start referring to those technologies as DCE or Digital Consumer Enablement.
