"Heart patient Mr. Smith's life is in the hands of the sophisticated critical care life-support equipment that breaths for him, keeps his heart beating, delivers drugs in measured doses, and watches all his vital signs. A nurse plugs a digital thermometer into the life-support machine, not knowing that the thermometer was dropped and broken. The DRM agent in the core system tries to validate the passport on the new component, fails, declares that someone is stealing digital content, and shuts the main processor down. Too bad for Mr. Smith."
