Petition Ban DRM and protect consumer rights to use technology without restriction

This petition calls on the government to introduce legislation to:
* Ban the inclusion of DRM on on digital media & on physical devices
* Explicitly guarantee the consumer right to remove DRM and use tech & digital media in any way for personal use

More details

DRM is implemented technically and legally. It limits how people can use technology they purchase.

It does not offer copy protection: https://bit.ly/2FklztS

DRM harms customers & creative industry:
* Render ebooks unreadable https://bbc.in/3huMxMB

* Lock publishers into bad deals https://bit.ly/33nHQ1I
* Prohibit screen mirroring https://bit.ly/2Zt1acZ
and impacts technology in many other ways
