EFF Speech to MSFT about Copyright 

Here's a transcript of a speech made by Cory Doctorow of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, to Microsoft on June 17, 2004. The gist of the lengthy speech is to persuade MSFT to drop plans to use DRM in their media players and media formats. But the speech is much more than that, and shares many interesting facts about copyright throughout history and how attempts to control media has always failed.

What's particularly amazing is that the speaker makes his case without resorting to any of the cliches we've heard over and over.
