Bruce Schneier: Palladium and the TCPA

Bruce Schneier: “Pd [Microsoft’s Palladium] is inexorably tied up with Digital Rights Management. Your computer will have several partitions, each of which will be able to read and write its own data. There’s nothing in Pd that prevents someone else (MPAA, Disney, Microsoft, your boss) from setting up a partition on your computer and putting stuff there that you can’t get at. Microsoft has repeatedly said that they are not going to mandate DRM, or try to control DRM systems, but clearly Pd was designed with DRM in mind.” (Via Edward Felten.)

The above was posted to my personal weblog on September 13, 2002. My name is Peter Lindberg and I am a thirtysomething software developer and dad living in Stockholm, Sweden. Here, you’ll find posts in English and Swedish about whatever happens to interest me for the moment.
