No DRM except for CNET?

I agree with Molly when she rants against DRM and it how it is not allowing consumers to use media in they way they want. I often shift programs between my networked TiVos and TiVoToGo to watch recordings wherever is most convienent. But there's one program from last week that TiVo refuses to allow transfering, stating "Tranferring prohibited by the copyright holder", that program is "CNET's Best of E3" by Molly Wood. Hope CNET's studios aren't made of glass...

Still a fan, I'll watch her shows where she lets me. Just find it ironic.

I just wish I could download Cnet Video

In reply to: No DRM except for CNET?

While I sometime watch the streamed Cnet videos, as a whole they break up to much for me to enjoy.

I just wish there was a download version or even an xml link so I could download them and play them locally.

Even better if I could put them on a portable device

But for me ... No Tivo'S IN NEW ZEALAND is watch one-line or miss out.

At least buzzout loud and Real deal audio can go with me

Thanks to Itunes anyway

yeah, would be nice

if we had any control over that. unfortunately, the opinions of buzz out loud are not necesarily those held by CNET.

CNET Business Model Flawed?

In reply to: No DRM except for CNET?

It seems like the opinions of the BOL crew suggest that there are better ways to do business than implement DRM schemes. Does that mean they think that CNET's business plan is flawed if they implement DRM?
