Sounds scary to me. I switched to ubuntu not becuase it's free in terms of $$ but free of any type bloatware introduced by MS/OSX and I don't want to by spied by my own distribution. If I decide to install propietary software I want it to be my decision. When I see "Ubuntu is DRM ready" I will dump it without hassles.
