So, British Petroleum — aka BP — which has dumped jillions of gallons of raw oil into the Gulf of Mexico has a live cam.
And guess what?
It has DRM on it!
On a Windows XP system, this means any screensnap taken and pasted into MS Paint saves as a blank, black screen — high irony in this case, no?
But DRM can be gotten around.
Here’s a snap I got just pointing a digital still camera by hand — no tripod — at my screen.
Sure, it’s not the sharpest picture. But anyone out there with a tripod and a better camera can easily bypass that stupid DRM.
You FAIL again, BP.
