drm can restrict what you can
do, when you can do it, how
often, and where you do it
drm can force you to
play a music file on
one type of music
player - and no other!
but what
about my
rights?
18
there were never any such rules
about which brand of record
player you could play vinyl
records on!
19
and does iTunes let you lend
music to your friends?
or sell it second hand? Its not
against the law, so why not??
20
Heres a little story...
21
22
Once upon a time, in a
small house in the
country, there lived a
lonely old pig named Pig.
Like most pigs, he did not
have a lot. Some days, he
barely had enough food
to eat. He was quite the
unhappy hog.
One morning, Pig found an
especially large turnip in
his garden.
"That is one big turnip,
he said to himself. I
don't remember planting
any turnips. Not even
giant ones. This has to
go."
So Pig pulled, and he
yanked, and pulled some
more until ... POP! The
turnip shot out of the
ground and broke in two!
23
Inside the turnip was a plain wooden box.
"What an odd place to keep a box," said Pig,
"Usually, you keep the turnips in a box, not
the other way around. What silly person is
going around putting boxes in turnips?"
Pig decided the box was a great place to put
carrots. So he picked a carrot from his
garden and threw it into the box.
Just then, something amazing happened! The
box tipped over, and out of it spilled
TWENTY-SEVEN CARROTS!
Pig said to himself: "I am quite certain I did
not throw twenty-seven carrots in there just
now. This makes as much sense as a cow
wearing a tutu."
Pig had to make sure he wasnt going crazy.
He very carefully threw just ONE potato into
the box. In an instant, the box tipped over,
and TWENTY-SEVEN POTATOES DROPPED
OUT!
24
Pig freaked out. He had a magic box! He
was so happy he nearly danced like an
orang-utan. He knew right away that he
did not want to let anyone else use the
box, because it belonged to him. Anyway,
they would probably want to copy stinky
things like old eggs and garlic.
So Pig put a sign next to the box that
read:
MAGIC BOX ONLY PIG MAY USE IT GO
AWAY
Then he carried his twenty-seven carrots
and twenty-seven potatoes inside his
house.
Before he could even close the door, a
crazy squirrel ran up and started dancing
like he had bees in his underwear.
"Lolipop Jones!" shouted the squirrel.
"What?" asked Pig.
"Lllllllolipop Jones!" replied the squirrel, so
Pig slammed the door and went back to
his dinner.
25
BLAM BLAM BLAM BLAM BLAM!
Someone knocked at the door and
scared Pig right onto his bum. He ran
to the door, opened the door, and
there on the doorstep was a duck
named Duck.
"I would like to use your magic box
please," said Duck, "I want to copy an
apple, and I will pay you one gold
coin!"
Oh, all right, said Pig.
They went outside to the box, and
Pig let Duck throw her apple inside.
The box tipped right over and
TWENTY-SEVEN APPLES DROPPED
OUT!
"Wacky-doodle-dandy!" said Duck.
26
"Wait a second! said Pig, What are
you going to do with these apples?
Ducks don't eat apples."
"Well" began Duck. "You LIE!"
shouted Pig, and he got a bucket
from his house.
"The apples go in here, Pig said,
This is a magic bucket. If anyone
but YOU tries to take an apple out
of this bucket, all the apples will
EXPLODE!"
But but but... said Duck. Go away!
shouted Pig, I dont trust you at
all!
He sent Duck away with her bucket
full of apples, and went back inside
his house to find his pot boiling over.
27
BLAM BLAM BLAM BLAM BLAM!
Someone knocked at the door and
scared Pig right onto his nose. He
ran to the door, opened the door,
and there on the doorstep was a
cute little bunny named Bunny.
"Lolipop Jones!" yelled Bunny.
"WHAT?" said Pig.
"I dunno, a crazy squirrel made me
say it," said Bunny. "Anyway, I need
to copy a banana for my grandma
please! I brought you a gold coin,
too!"
Oh, all right, said Pig.
They went outside to the box, and
Pig let Bunny throw his banana
inside. The box tipped right over and
TWENTY-SEVEN BANANAS DROPPED
OUT!
"Crazy, dude!" said Bunny.
28
"Wait a second! said Pig, What
are you going to do with these
bananas? Bunnies don't eat
bananas."
"Heh, funny story..." began Bunny.
"You LIE!" shouted Pig, and he got
another bucket from his house.
"The bananas go in here, Pig said,
This is a magic bucket. If I find out
you're doing something bad with
those bananas, all I have to do is
jump up
and down three times, and all the
bananas will DISAPPEAR!" But but
but... said Bunny. Go away!
shouted Pig, I dont trust you
either!
He sent Bunny away with his bucket
full of bananas, and went back
inside his house to find his carrots
on fire.
29
BLAM BLAM BLAM BLAM BLAM!
Someone knocked at the door and
scared Pig right onto his eyeball!
He ran to the door, opened the
door, and there on the doorstep
was a slow little turtle named
Maurice.
"I've got a coconut," said Maurice.
"It's lovely," said Pig. "I'd like a
bunch, said Maurice, And I've got
a gold coin, too." Pig just sighed.
They went outside to the box, and
Pig let Maurice throw his coconut
inside. The box tipped right over
and TWENTY-SEVEN COCONUTS
DROPPED OUT!
"Woo. Hoo." said Maurice slowly.
30
"Wait a second! said Pig, What are you
going to do with these coconuts?
Turtles don't eat coconuts."
Maurice took so long to reply that Pig
thought he must be lying about
something.
"You LIE! shouted Pig, and he got
another bucket from his house.
"The coconuts go in here, Pig said, This
is a magic bucket. If you try and bring
them anywhere but your kitchen, the
bucket will FLY BACK TO ME!"
But but but... said Maurice. I dont
trust you at all, and you smell like
CHEESE! shouted Pig.
He sent Maurice away with his bucket
full of coconuts, and went back inside
his house to find his potatoes had
turned to mush.
31
Before he could even close the door,
the crazy squirrel was there, dancing
like a lunatic and blowing bubbles from
his nose.
"Lllllllolipop Jones!" sang the squirrel,
and ran away. Pig was so mad that he
started jumping up and down in fury.
"Go away! he screamed, Go away
and leave me alone, you crazy little fur
ball!"
Just then, Duck came bounding up the
road. She was covered from head to
toe in sticky, gooey apple sauce.
"Yoooooou stinky Pig!" yelled Duck.
"What happened to YOU?" gasped Pig.
"My baby duckling tried to eat an
apple for snack time, and ALL THE
APPLES EXPLODED! Why cant I share
the apples with my family, Pig?
Oh... said Pig.
32
Yoooooou cranky Pig! yelled Bunny, running
up the road.
"What happened to YOU?" gasped Pig and
Duck.
"My grandma was making banana cream
pie!" Bunny cried, "But when it came out of
the oven, ALL THE BANANAS HAD
DISAPPEARED! She was so mad, she THREW
IT AT ME! You jumped three times, DIDNT
YOU, PIG?! said Bunny.
Um... well... said Pig.
Yoooooou... Pig! yelled Maurice, running up
the road wearing a coconut instead of his
shell.
"What happened to YOU?" gasped Pig and
Duck and Bunny.
"I tried to eat a coconut in my dining room,
and all of a sudden the bucket flew away!
One coconut hit me so hard, I ended up
INSIDE IT! Why do I always have to eat in my
kitchen, Pig?"
Er... well... said Pig. "You look funny, said
Bunny to Maurice, Can I roll you?"
33
Pig was so upset he sat down and
started to cry.
"This magic box is nothing but
trouble!" he sobbed, "It makes
apples explode, it makes bananas
disappear, and it makes coconuts
eat turtles!"
"It doesn't do any of those
things!" snapped Duck, "YOU did
all those things! You should learn
to SHARE!"
Duck was right! The magic box was
doing what it was supposed to do!
It was Pig who was nothing but
trouble!
Pig decided to make things right.
He decided not to use any more
magic buckets ever again, and he
replaced the old nasty sign with a
new one that read:
MAGIC SHARING BOX USE IT!
34
After that, Pig's life was much
better.
People came from far and wide
to use his magic box.
Whenever they got their
copies, they always left him
some, too. Pig especially liked
the vegetables.
After a while, Pig became an
expert at cooking, and opened
a family restaurant with
booths and jukeboxes and
chairs made out of upside-
down buckets.
He called the restaurant
"Lolipop Jones", but he didn't
know why. Everything turned
out just fine.
35
That is, until the crazy squirrel threw
HIMSELF into the box.
36
In this story, what was the magic box?
Who was Pig?
And what was it that pig was trying
to control?
Whats the moral of the story?
