Laugh or cry?

The IT Crowd is a comedy series that started last week on Channel 4. I found it quite amusing, partially because it's full of geeky in-jokes. Roy and Moss - the standard nerds - have EFF stickers all over their office, including "Fair use has a posse" and "MP3 is not a crime".

So I go to the website this morning, where they're offering this Friday's episode early. I download it, getting past their IP address sniffing because I'm in the UK, and open it. It's a Windows Media Video, with DRM. Really. Is this irony, hypocrisy, or just stupidity?

it's a depiction of geekyness, it doesn't mean they agree with it. / Comment from Zogger on 09 Feb 2006 at 19:47.
