MLB Rips Off Fans, Proves Once Again DRM Sucks

If you purchased content from MLB in the last several years, you’re screwed. It’s gone. It’s disappeared, it ceases to exist.

I feel, even for this Red Sox fan, who purchased over $250 of content from Major League Baseball, who in turn, revoked DRM and made his content worthless. BoingBoing covered the MLB DRM fiasco too.

The fact is, DRM is for suckers. It’s BAD for the consumer, and it only benefits the content provider, who rarely has the best interest of the customer in mind. I am a big baseball fan, but thanks to this, I will never purchase content from MLB. Then again, I wouldn’t have anyway if it was tangled in DRM.

Either way, shame on you, Major League Baseball!
