So the Myce April joke wasn’t very far from the truth, now was it?

Just like buying a book and having to ask the bookstore for permission every time you want to read it.
Obviously the studios want to kill forever physical media.

This reminds me of the Richard Stallman short story, The Right to Read, which depicts a character named Dan in a serious delema: the girl he has a crush on wants to borrow his computer, and might end up ilegally read is books, which would probably land them both in jail. Also, only the Goverment (and Microsoft) can decide which programs the users in this story can run, as running simple tools including debuggers, or even free operating systems without permission is considered the same as piracy.

We all have to stop buying things from Sony. They musn’t get away with killing our freedom any more than they already have.

The thing is when companies do stuff like this. It only supports piracy - as people go out of their way to want to pirate the stuff to stick to fingers up at them.

I wonder if they realise who they are targeting:

  1. The honest paying customer who buys the film on this new disc format.
  2. The person who downloads the film using The Pirate Bay.

Let’s rephrase that: If the DRM decides the device is not authorised to play the content, exactly who does it affect above?

… and they wonder why they have problems controlling piracy. :disagree:
