DRM hypocrisy

by jerrymfrost / October 26, 2006 6:30 AM PDT

Today's show started wishing Molly well at Digital Hollywood and confidence that she would tell them DRM is a disaster and should be avoided.

Not 5 minutes later, Veronica and Tom are looking forward to Netflix offering downloads. Tom wonders how a file can expire, in the same way as a DVD returned to Netflix is no longer playable, so that another download can be commenced.

The unmentioned answer: DRM!!!!

In your DRM-free nirvana, you can kiss goodbye to DVD rental. The only option will be purchase because there will be no way of offering limited access at limited price.
