Disney's Keychest: Is Giving Back Your Fair Use Rights With More DRM Really A Step Forward?

,----[ Quote ]
| So, kudos to Disney for recognizing that people 
| hate having to buy the same content over and 
| over again and hate being limited on what 
| devices they can view content on... but, 
| creating a new, more permissive DRM solution, 
| just to give back some of an individual's fair 
| use rights, isn't really a huge win.


Big Internet carriers win right to manage traffic

,----[ Quote ]
| Canada's big Internet carriers have scored a 
| major victory, as the telecommunication 
| regulator ruled it is okay for them to slow 
| down some of the Web traffic travelling to 
| customers' personal computers â as long as the 
| companies explain ahead of time what they are 
| doing.


Spanish net neutrality definition

,----[ Quote ]
| A Spanish colleague sent me this ânet 
| neutralityâ definition from a Spanish law:
|     Citizens have the right to not suffer in 
|     their digital sent or received data any 
|     kind of manipulation, distortion, 
|     prevention, diversion, priorization or 
|     delay. 



Blu-ray on the PC: DRM failure

,----[ Quote ]
| I recently bought a Blu-ray DVD player for my home
| PC.  I didnât really need a Blu-ray player as the PS3
| does the job admirably, but I was looking for a fast
| CD ripper and decided to go for the Blu-ray disc
| option as it was cheap and fast.  I installed the
| drive last night, and since I have been frustrated by
| the unfriendliness of the technological
| implementation.
