    No, no, no.... Privacy, anonymity, and digital rights management
    are all inextricably entertwined parts of the same problem, but they
    don't necessarily equate or conflict.

    ("DRM?" you ask...
    As Dan Geer likes to point out, privacy technologies ideally let the
    owner of a piece of information control its disclosure, copying, duration
    of disclosure, and frequency/count of disclosure. That's also the
    laundry list for an ideal digital rights management system.)
