Dr. M is the BOL nickname for Digital Rights Management (DRM). Doctor M. is often considered to be nemesis of Buzztown inhabitants.
Doctor M resides in a bunker deep inside an inactive volcano where he derives new forms of encryption for audio, video, and text media to reduce usability for end users. Doctor M is currently thought (by Buzztown's inhabitants) to be bankrolled by the RIAA and the MPAA.
He phoned in on episode 714 to announce a mayoral campaign.
He also phoned in on episode 1341, Brian Tong's first episode as co-host, to announce a bid for the BOL iPod Mixtape.
