Ofcom Does the Right Thing on the BBC's DRM

,----[ Quote ]
| A couple of months ago, I wrote a post 
| about the BBC being under pressure to add a 
| form of DRM to its HD service. I included a 
| copy of a letter I wrote to Ofcom, noting 
| that I had only found out about this sneaky 
| move at the last minute, and that comments 
| had to be submitted immediately.


We Know Hollywood Is This Dumb. Et Tu, Netflix?

,----[ Quote ]
| Back in August, we wrote about the 
| Hollywood movie studios conspiring to keep 
| new release DVDs away from services like 
| Netflix and Redbox for as many as 30 days 
| after their release. The idea behind this 
| from Hollywoodâs perspective is simple: If 
| people canât rent movies right away, 
| theyâll buy more. Sorry, did I say the idea 
| was âsimpleâ? I meant, âidioticâ.


Buyers Who Purchased Modern Warfare 2 Via Steam Discover DRM Puts Them 2 Days Behind Everyone Else

,----[ Quote ]
| When talking about video games, we 
| sometimes hear that Valve's Steam is one of 
| the few examples of "DRM that works," but 
| that's hard to accept when you hear 
| ridiculous stories like this one.



Lulu introduces DRM

,----[ Quote ]
| I'm inclined to think that at the very least, I
| shouldn't publish with Lulu again; and,
| probably, I should also withdraw my existing
| publications from their system and find some
| other print-on-demand outfit. Is that an
| overreaction?
