As the facts show, DRM has already failed in nearly each instance it has been tried. Aside from failing to prevent copying, which is its initial purpose, it also annoys legal users, limiting value instead of improving it But there are still companies that try DRM, despite it is largely agreed by many critics that such plans are simply pointless. Nevertheless, the latest move from the Associated Press was an attempt to apply DRM to the news. Although they don’t call it DRM, it's what it looks like.
The described registry is going to employ a microformat for news created by Associated Press, which was endorsed by the Media Standards Trust recently. The latter is a London-based non-commercial research and development entity calling on news groups to introduce consistent news formats for content located in the Internet. This microformat is supposed to essentially encapsulate the company’s content in a data "wrapper," which includes a digital permissions framework allowing the publishers to trace how their copyrighted content is used in the web. Moreover, it would also supply the critical data necessary to trace and monitor the usage of content. Actually, the plan sounds like the dreams of DRM, lively discussed by the software industry about twenty years ago, or by the music industry ten years ago. As we can see, neither of them worked, though they both were in theory a lot more protectable than news.
In fact, the critics are con sentient over this question: this attempt won't work, as it is physically unable to do that. The news is thing on which you simply can't put any real DRM, since it is too easy to copy text from the news and delete all the "registry" tags out of it. If one considers the question of value, it becomes clear that DRM only removes it, but in no way increases it to anyone. In fact, it deprives those willing to help promote the content an incentive to do so.

|Jeez these people just don't get it.|
Now they are trying to have malware - web bots and beacons install themselves on your computer ( if your that stupid to allow it? are you? )just to read their crap.
The really amazing thing is they have to allow their pages to download for some one to see it; you try to keep that from happening NO ONE is seeing anything. I bet you visit their page you will immediately see a notice to continue you will have to allow either a java app or an active-x app to continue.. HELL NO...
As the article mentions you can just highlight and copy; but you may see that nasty little java window pop open and say no no.. you can't it's copyrighted. Well with mozilla just turn off the java and copy away.. then turn it back on when you are finished LMFAO... I already do this when you get stuck at those stupid web pages that trap you and you can't back out? I just turn off the java in the browser and back away, then turn it back on
