Ye gods!  Won't they ever learn that the street can screw any acronym?

Do we want to call it:
Digital Customer Emasculation (too misunderstandable?);
Don't-Copy Enforcement;
Device-Crippling Electronics;
Death of Consumer Entertainment;
Designed by Corporate Entertainment lawyers;
or something else?

Hopefully it will finally lead to the long-overdue
Dead Cocksuckers in the Entertainment industry.  Bye bye HBO?
