Implications of Microsoft's WGA Breakdown

Greetings. For those of us who have long been concerned about Microsoft's increasingly aggressive use of anti-piracy technologies, the new problems with WGA (which have reportedly now been fixed, but some customers will have to jump through a few hoops to clean up the resulting mess on their systems) should be yet another big, waving, red flag.

There will no doubt be much more to say when additional details are known, but this is an extremely important issue that cuts to the heart of intrusive anti-piracy and DRM technologies.
