DMCA violation for NOT using a DRM system...

... huh? Apple, Microsoft threatened with possible digital copyright lawsuit -

MRT and Bluebeat said the failure to use an available copyright protection solution contravenes the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, which prohibits the manufacture of any product or technology designed to circumvent a technological measure that effectively controls access to a copyrighted work or protects the rights of copyright owners.

They said a failure to comply with the cease and desist order could result in in a federal court injunction and/or the imposition of statutory damages of 200-2,500 usd per product distributed or sold.

If there were ever a lawsuit that should see lawyers sanctioned, it would be this on.
