:Z What a ghastly idea!
And what do we do with the Millions of TVs and Net Boxes that don’t have this new DRM? Not all can be fixed with a firmware update.
It would appear that Google, Netflix and Microsoft have yet again succumbed to “Greed at any cost”.
More DRM, just what we need. It’s not like DRM gets in anyone’s way or anything, plus its always so effective! We absolutely can’t live without it!
(Isn’t sarcasm fun?)
[QUOTE=olddancer;2677371]And what do we do with the Millions of TVs and Net Boxes that don’t have this new DRM?[/QUOTE] Well, you are probably aware that there are millions of brand new unsold televisions stocked in warehouses. This will be a most excellent time for the consumer to be forced to ‘upgrade’. Hey, why not have 3D and 4K as well while you’re at it.
We can already download DRM protected videos from Adobe Flash streams. We can copy DRM books, we can copy DRM mp3s.
I’m not a gamer, but I am sure someone can fill me in on this point.
I’m surprised by Google they really are traitors.
It was inevitable. Some companies need DRM so for HTML to move forward this was necessary
