Federal Trade Commission Weighs In On DRM – Gamers, Speak Up

Now’s your chance to tell the FTC how you feel about Digital Rights Management technologies – the Commission has opened up a comment form to the public.

“All timely and responsive public comments, whether filed in paper or electronic form, will be considered by the Commission, and will be placed on the public record of this proceeding,” says the posted FTC notice.

This matters to you, dear gamer, because DRM is a pain for gamers and hardly an obstacle for PC game pirates. Games for Windows Community Manager Ryan Miller backs this up on his blog. Take the time to tell the FTC this and Microsoft might actually have to start playing nice.

The actual Town Hall meeting will take place in Seattle, WA on March 25, 2009.

Check out the form here.
