It’s DCE, not DRM

George Orwell would be so proud of this. HBO‘s CTO recently said he no longer wants to use the term DRM, Digital Rights Management, for how they copy-protect their content. Instead, he prefers the term DCE, Digital Consumer Enablement (emphasis mine). Referring to a technology that limits what I can do with content as something that “enables” my use… well… that’s just double-plus good, isn’t it?
