Whaddaya know. The EU actually does make somethings halfways decent. The latest is the BEUC - the EU Consumer rights organisation - that has launched a website and a campaign to act as counterweight and lobbying entity against the rampant DRM overkill and privacy violations and other bullshit that's going on in the hands of the media companies right now. This is direly needed - the big media throw unreal amounts of effort and money on getting EU legislation to grant them the most preposterous rights (can you say Outlaw-the-shift-button?) - it's about time that someone with at least a little Ooomph steps in and guards the people.
I currently work as a temp with focus software design of security applications on small devices. Apparently this includes unhinging a locked box in a secure locker, and by pulling at it until it (hanging on the lock) reaches far enough out gaining room enough to insert most of my arm and piece by piece retrieving everything within the box. And I get paid for doing this! :)
