Apparently Sony and others have been using companies that can track pirated copies of music sofware by identifying the unique audio qualities of the particular software. Watermarking is not needed to do this. It is quick, comprehensive, and inexpensive. The same can be done for video.


Such a system makes sense. Prosecute those who violate copyright. Just as it is done today. Everything is copied including expensive designer clothes. Copied in the millions with millions in losses. How does dress industry handle it. They prosecute the violators.


There are copies of everything from collectibles, and expensive paintings.


The Music Industry and the Movie Industry should be told they have adquate tools to find and punish abusers.


STOP PUNISHING THE INNOCENT PUBLIC.

Watermark a movie. Say, Star wars II.


Gee, that movie we are seeing is Star Wars II, I can tell by the watermark.


Well, DUH.


To be broad, it can probally also tell them approximately where it was

sold, and on what media (off screen, DVD, etc).


Net result, still pretty much zero.


Explaining these facts of technological life to the MPAA is like explaining

rocket physics to a 5 year old.


What the MPAA *wants* is for your computer to reject any attempt to use

that watermarked signal, automatically. The watermarking itself is pretty

useless.
