Como já dizia o sábio:
"ôoo, é sempre mais do mesmo. Não era isso o que você queria ouvir?"
Na real, nunca vi abaixo assinado por email/petição online dar resultado,
ainda mais contra Steve Jobs...
Mas até onde eu sei, ele mesmo não gosta dos modelos de DRM que existem
hoje, e nos equipamentos dele, existem DRM mais por questão de indústria e
aspectos legais do que por incentivo da Apple.
Mesmo assim, os GNUs que não gostam/não querem cair nas implicações de DRM
que o "celular de Itu" vai impor, resta não comprar o equipamento e seguirem
felizes e contentes dentre seu conceito de liberdade :-)

> SAN FRANCISCO, California, USA -- Wednesday, January 27, 2010 -- As
> Steve Jobs and Apple prepared to announce their new tablet device,
> activists opposed to Digital Restrictions Management (DRM) from the
> group Defective by Design were on hand to draw the media's attention to
> the increasing restrictions that Apple is placing on general purpose
> computers. The group set up "Apple Restriction Zones" along the
> approaches to the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco,
> informing journalists of the rights they would have to give up to Apple
> before proceeding inside.

> DRM is used by Apple to restrict users' freedom in a variety of ways,
> including blocking installation of software that comes from anywhere
> except the official Application Store, and regulating every use of
> movies downloaded from iTunes. Apple furthermore claims that
> circumventing these restrictions is a criminal offense, even for
> purposes that are permitted by copyright law.
> Organizing the protest, Free Software Foundation (FSF) operations
> manager John Sullivan said, "Our Defective by Design campaign has a
> successful history of targeting Apple over its DRM policies. We
> organized actions and protests targeting iTunes music DRM outside Apple
> stores, and under the pressure Steve Jobs dropped DRM on music. We're
> here today to send the same message about the other restrictions Apple
> is imposing on software, ebooks, and movies. If Jobs and Apple are
> actually committed to creativity, freedom, and individuality, they
> should prove it by eliminating the restrictions that make creativity and
> freedom illegal."
> The group is asking citizens to sign a petition calling on Steve Jobs to
> remove DRM from Apple devices. The petition can be found at:
> "Attention needs to be paid to the computing infrastructure our society
> is becoming dependent upon. This past year, we have seen how human
> rights and democracy protesters can have the technology they use turned
> against them by the corporations who supply the products and services
> they rely on. Your computer should be yours to control. By imposing such
> restrictions on users, Steve Jobs is building a legacy that endangers
> our freedom for his profits," said FSF executive director Peter Brown.
> Other critics of DRM have asserted that Apple is not responsible, and it
> is the publishers insisting on the restrictions. However, on the iPhone
> and its new tablet, Apple does not provide publishers any way to opt out
> of the restrictions -- even free software and free culture authors who
> want to give legal permission for users to share their works.
> "This is a huge step backward in the history of computing," said FSF's
> Holmes Wilson, "If the first personal computers required permission from
> the manufacturer for each new program or new feature, the history of
> computing would be as dismally totalitarian as the milieu in Apple's
> famous Super Bowl ad."
