Open Source DRM?

It seems to me that someone over at Sun has not fully thought this one through. DRM (Digital Rights Management), by definition, cannot be open source as it would allow users to alter the protection and thus negate the DRM, which would be used to protect digital content such as music and video files. Unless, they have some new fangled definition of 'open source', I think this project will be dead on arrival.

I guess they have too much money and need projects to work on.
