For this to be ironic, you would first need to presume that all copyright
lawyers support DRM, which would be a fallacy. Indeed, since DRM is viewed
by its proponents as a substitute for copyright, and copyright is the
business of copyright lawyers, it would be fair to assume that the
percentage of copyright lawyers who support DRM is probably less than that
of corporate lawyers, IT lawyers or of the general population.

Subject: [d at DCC] Tale of delicious irony - Copyright lawyer defeated by DRM
While at work today I was told by one of our clients (a copyright lawyer who
shall remain nameless) that he purchased a track on PureTracks (our
"favorite" Windows-only DRM-filled music store) - The kicker? The DRM
wouldn't allow him to play the track. I forgot to mention to him about
Fading Ways and a few of the other sites mentioned here - I'll have to do
that next time I'm there.
Even now I can't stop chuckling.
