But Steve Jobs was right about one thing. You can't stop piracy.
That would be fairly obvious. Theres always going to be one person out of a group who would steal rather than buy. It's just part of being human. We're not all the same.
I agree with this.
I pirate, not going to lie. Why? Because I store all my films on my server and stream them to XBMC clients. There is no legit way for me to do this. That's a simple fact. DRM would stop me doing it, either through encryption or locking to one device etc.
but is anything actually going to change? i doubt the big corps, already having invested a ton of money into drm is going to listen.
When Apple removed its DRM from its music on the iTunes Store, now I actually do buy my music off it. Personally, I like AAC over MP3 and sadly, no other stores sell me AAC files, so Apple's my go to company for my legal music.
Personally, DRM does harm business when it's done in a draconian way. The Steam approach, I say works best for games, unfortunately, you can't do that with movies or music.
Oh? Any DVD HD doesn't work for you?

fixed it for you
This is just plain silly,
The user experience for pirating is much(Much!) better then the user experience for buying stuff.
Totally, many people don't have the disposable income to spend on all the extra films, game ect they would like to own so the download it for free :nerd:
Worst excuse ever.
lol...spot on there
what is xbmc?
Does he know what he is talking about or commenting on? (BTW, this is a comment from the linked article)
TBH, not an excuse but a fact. DRM hurt the legit customer while done nothing to stop/slow piracy. They are screwing the legit customer. Not only they paid more due to the overhead from DRM, they also gain less by not able to backup the disk etc.
XBox media center?
Media Centre software (best there is), sorts your films with info and cover art, can search your library, sort by year/genre/actor etc. Fantastic, been using it since 2006, however back then it was on a softmodded original xbox. Here's a sample. You can get diff skins to suit your style.
