Accidental DRM art

An unsuccessful attempt to play DRM’d videos* resulted in some amazing graphic art. Here is a selection of my accidental DRM art:

* The DRM’d videos that I was trying to watch were from season 4 of Battlestar Galactica. I downloaded them using Amazon Unbox Digital Downloads (due to the fact that they weren’t available on iTunes). The videos kept crashing in the Amazon Unbox Player in Parallels so I thought I would see what would happen if I tried to watch them using VLC in OS X. The result was beautiful and frustrating. I ended up watching the BSG videos in Parallels using Windows Media Player.
