We'd first need to abolish DRM

I mean DRM obviously is one of the big problems in the whole area here.

DRM means that in order to use the material you need to break the DRM. Even playing DRM "protected" files means you need to install software working against your interrests, which is fundamentaly incompatible with your right of "integrity and confidentiality of information processing equipment" as declared by the constitutional court in Germany.
