Well it is basically money that is speaking here. LIke eveyrone else in this game, they want you to buy a new copy if your copy gets lost or stolen or breaks. You no longer own any rights to anything you buy anymore, so they might as well change it from "Buy yoru music from us" to rent your music or movies or wahtever from us on media tha twill fail as soon as you try to use it. It's BS and good old American companies are forcing this crap on the rest of the world cause they are too lazy to grow. I guess if you can't grow, learn to enslave your audience with propritary tech, and hope they are stupid enough to not learn. Bush won, so I guess we know how smart those Americans idiots are. I wonder how long it will be before the no comercial skipping law WILL pass. Glad I live in Canada, the TRUE home of the FREE!
