DRM strikes yet again

by tgposzadmin on September 3rd, 2007

Wil Wheaton (yes that Wil Wheaton) posted problems with his DirectTV-HDMI connectivity. All due to software which “protects the content” from people who have legally paid for the content.

DRM is totally a mess right now, and it’s not going to get better until customers speak up and force the content management and delivery mechansims to change.

Wil: How many DirecTV customers are currently hosed by this DRM-related nightmare? I’m not sure, but I can tell you what the number would be if the damn studios and networks weren’t so dead set on treating their customers like criminals: zero.
