A few points... First, DRM is here to stay. No offense, but geeks will have no say in this. The movie industry must protect their property. Security through low-bandwidth is coming to an end. In 5 years you'll be able to download a 1 gig file in a very reasonable amount of time. Some people play by the rules, but most of the laments about "fair use" and the seemingly valid arguments against DRM are codewords for "we want free stuff". Second, WMV is what I want to win. Namely because even with HD-DVD, MP4 takes too much space to put a high quality 1080P movie on a DVD. WMV has better quality per compression unit, so they'll probably be able to fit full quality 1080p video on a DVD with it.
