From Defective By Design:
With the new school year starting, many students will head off to college for the first time.
For some, college offers a chance to learn about computing and even free software, or to use computers productively in their learning about other subjects. For others, college brings with it a new restriction to the house of learning: DRM. Some colleges are now requiring and even supplying DRM-laden hardware to new students in lieu of textbooks and other materials.
We're compiling a list of colleges and other schools that either require or supply DRM-laden hardware, such as the iPod, iPhone, iPad or Amazon Kindle. Feel free to add other DRM-laden devices too, but these are the most commonly found. We need your help to do it!
