Dear pot,

Yesterday, people all over the world spoke out against Digital
Restrictions Management with flyering, rallies, teach-ins, and sales
on DRM-free media. Our eighth International Day Against DRM was a
smashing success. Here are some of the highlights from yesterday's

* DRM Elimination Crew activists in Dhaka, Seattle, Boston, and other
  cities around the globe took to the streets to raise awareness about
  DRM's harmful effects. At the Boston action, supporters engaged
  passersby in conversation about DRM in front of a Best Buy, and then
  snuck a few flyers between copies of DRM-encumbered movies and games
  before heading to a local pub.

* The Electronic Frontier Foundation held an online teach-in. If you
  missed it, you can [watch a recording][1] on their site.

  executive body of the European Union][2].

  action][3] too.

* Several online stores offered sales on DRM-free media, including
  O'Reilly, the Humble Bundle, No Starch Press, and Packt Publishing.
