I don’t have the references for what you’re talking about, but in general, I’d say “DRM” is not something I’m a particular fan of  - proper expression of licensing intent, and the unlocking of commercially-produced font licenses for use with web content, IS.

I’d like to ask that we keep the discussion from falling into name-calling.
