A campaign has sprung up on NeoGAF to try and convince Sony not to use Digital Rights Management (DRM) for the PS4. This started after Geoff Keighley indicated that his sources are telling him that Sony is going to have a DRM system in place. Reaction on NeoGAF was perhaps understandably negative in the thread about the Geoff Keighly PS4 DRM reveal. Within the thread, those claiming to have Sony connections in the industry spoke up, indicating that Sony has not made up their minds 100 percent yet and that people should contact those in charge at Sony via Twitter to let their opinions be known.

So a campaign quickly developed which involves contacting Sony Heads via Twitter and using the Twitter hashtags of #PS4NoDRM and #PS4USEDGAMES.

So what do you think? Will contacting Sony in the fashion have any effect for their plans for the PS4? Perhaps the information is wrong and Sony has no plans to use DRM for the PS4 in the first place? Maybe so, but I suppose it never hurts to try if you are against DRM on consoles and it only takes a minute to send out a tweet on Twitter.
