"There is no consensus on any significant point," Philips senior researcher Michael Epstein said.


Sounds like they have an agreement, but didn't agree. :rolleyes:

I guess what I do not understand is how they keep it off the internet. Will computers not read it?? That will not last 5 mintues before someone FIXES that. Anyone have any insight just how they keep if off the internet.

They don't, at least not for long. They can just make it more of a hassle to use material you've paid hard-earned bucks for. And they can sue and shut down people's internet connections under DMCA where someone is guilty until proven innocent. By time you prove you were just exercising your fair use rights, you're tens of thousands of dollars in the whole and facing bankruptcy. These guys have deep pockets and you don't...


Frankly, all these schemes are going to do is increase the cost of hardware to consumers with no real tangible benefit.
