All I am saying is fool me once shame on you…fool me twice shame on me–get it? I want to send a message like the one sent to the music industry. If you hobble your products with DRM that thwarts my legal rights, then I don’t want them.
CSS the encrytion on DVD is annoying as hell, especially in todays consumer market that sells devices that can carry compressed video. Why should I buy a movie in several different forms? Why can’t I take the one I bought and transfer it to my iPod or my EEEPc for a road trip?
The nice thing (for us) is that they cannot do a lot with CSS without “breaking” the huge install base of DVD players. If they could they would. With this newer more sopisticated scheme with internet capability, they can do all sorts of crap. All you need is provide for an Internet connection at your expense to keep your player “alive”. Otherwise, you have a doorstop.
The bottom line is with DVD you are hampered, with BR you are going to be CHARGED. this is all they are waiting for is for people to embrace BR and diitch DVD players. Then, the corporations can enhance cash flow after the sale, by charging you for every action that you wish to make. The annoying thing is we should be able to perform actions like backup or transfer to a digital portable device for free.
Still scratching your head? Maybe not.
