  Cory's new DRM paper
This stuff is important in so many ways. Written for an International Telecommunications Union report on DRM, and pointed directly at the people around the world who are making decisions on which DRM to use. The answer, in most cases, is "none of the above, because you'll only be hurting yourself and your customers, while doing nothing to reduce the 'loss of rights' you're trying to prevent." The executive summary says it best:

This paper discusses the failure of DRM in the developed world, where it has been in wide deployment for a decade with no benefit to artists and with substantial cost to the public and to due process, free speech and other civil society fundamentals.
