If you read the stories about what Hollywood wants in terms of copy protection for the new DVD formats (and yes, there are two of them), you can see that no one there gets it. What a bunch of morons.
In the quest to lock this shit up as tight as they can, they're killing the technology and driving people to get their content elsewhere. No one is going to want to deal with the hassle of these various copy protection schemes, let alone buy all kinds of hardware to support it.
In fact, the physical medium of a disc is in itself silly. Look at what has happened with music. CD's are quickly becoming a dying breed. I haven't bought a CD in almost two years. Yes, I have to deal with some DRM buying online, but it's relatively simple and in many cases easy to remove entirely.
Wake up Hollywood. People will pay for content. People who steal it will find ways to steal it anyway. Don't make things a nightmare for us.
