This has been repeated way too often, but it still appears that the entertainment industry doesn't quite get it. As they continue to insist on the need to use copy protection, they never seem to respond to the fact that copy protection doesn't work. The latest to make the case is a researcher whose PhD. covered issues related to copy protection, and is hoping the industry will finalize recognize that copy protection isn't the issue -- better business models are all that's needed. Of course, plenty of people have been saying that for years, but the industry continues to ignore it. Instead, they prefer to alienate so much of their market by treating them like criminals that by the time they do figure out the need for different business models, most of that market will have already gone elsewhere.
