War for DRM is OVER! Big Business WINS?

Tech and Science News: War for DRM is OVER! Big Business WINS?

DRM for streaming video is about to change dramatically, and not necessarily for the better, thanks to a new standard that could bring criminal charges to anyone who even looks at it funny. So... gird your browsers and get your malware protection ready (as long as it doesn't give you malware, itself...).

    What Jeff Jaffe meant to say was "I know from my conversations that many people are not satisfied with the result. now if you will excuse me I'm going to take this briefcase of corporate money and leave before you all get hacked."

    More like the battle for the WWW... or the main bits of it like stuff owned by Google, FacePalm and Apple (just need to get your kicks from other places... erm... so lots of places left to go to?)

    TLDR; Welcome to the Nanny Internet... (but just like nanny states, they don't last long if only because everyone leaves/grows out of it whether the nanny likes it or not).



    ... but then that's happened before and the result is more of the Internet becoming dark... but then more popular bits of that are becoming lighter with time and various of them are immune to some of these problems... particularly the bits that are not beholden to standards bodies or even other parts of the same network e.g. non-centralised systems such as Tor and the like (which is not exactly unusual, mesh wi-fi networks use a non-centralised organisational system for creating wi-fi networks on the fly with unstable participants nodes).

    Sounds to me like people, who don't really understand the technology and user environment, are setting policy for technology and users. ... Par for the course, lately. Those who have been unable to keep up refuse to accept that they simply haven't been able to keep up.


    I guess those in power refuse to give up such powers for the benefit of the masses - the "we know what's best for everyone" mentality and are afraid of handing the reigns to people who could be more qualified but do things that don't make sense to those in currently in power. I often say: "Those, who think they know what's best for everyone, likely don't." Wow. Politics and DRM seem to overlap a lot.
