Windows Vista Content Protection system is like the Labour 1983 Manifesto

If anyone is interested in what some of the features of Windows Vista includes, part of it is Content Protection, and, according to a New Zealand based academic, it quite possibly represents the "longest suicide note in history" by Microsoft.

Peter Gutmann, of the Computing Science department at the University of Auckland has written a cost analysis of Vista's content protection system which certainly cuts to the chase in highlighting it's problem. Well worth a read, although it is quite technical.
