Apple Comes Out Against French Copyright Law

Apple spokeswoman Natalie Kerris says the law would increase piracy, presumably because the law would require it to be possible loss-lessly translate DRM-protected media into other (non-DRM protected) formats.

I still haven’t found a good technical explanation of just what this law would mandate, and I’m starting to get the feeling that it’s because it doesn’t really mandate anything specific, but rather just broad untenable precepts that aren’t feasible without abandoning DRM completely.
