Did you people not pay attention within the past ten years? Making things like that illegal never changed the end result. So yeah, good luck to whichever cracker group makes it happen first, because they will.

You don't get it. Censorship and extortion should never be "easy".

Good luck. Circumventing DRM in a "Living Standard" will be a
really-fast Whack-A-Mole. Plus circumventing DRM is a felony in the
United States, which you could prove quickly with a spider. Google,
Yahoo, and Microsoft can do the same thing and put you and your site on
a permanent blacklist (a la their phishing databases).
