DRM thought-crime

A young legal clerk has been fired from her job at a New York firm after a public expression of contempt for DRM:

In so many words, I was told that the firm could no longer employ me due to my aberrant views on copyright law—although I was feverishly reassured of my right to hold those views. This assurance had relatively little value, however, as I was still fired for expressing the views in question.

Working for universities can be frustrating at times, but thank God they don't feel they have the right to censor their employees' public pronouncements. (Via BoingBoing)
