Over the last two days, the HD-DVD encryption key leak has gained momentum. Now considering that most of the stories on the first few pages of Digg relate to this, and that the key is now available on a hell of a lot of sites, I surely don't need to tell you about it. But is it the beginning of a revolution?

The tech community has for long been aware of the ills of DRM and related agencies like the MAFIAA. But the general public and mass media has largely ignored the issue. I believe its time the fight for freedom goes public. What we need is to educate common people about the horrific connotations of DRM.

What would be really cool is a full page advertisement in widely read newspapers about the numbers and about DRM
