Hollywood Still Doesn't Get It
from the this-sounds-familiar dept
At least some of the media is beginning to (maybe, possibly) realize how silly Hollywood’s obsession with copy protection is. While it doesn’t trash Hollywood outright for the obsession, at least this NY Times article on all the various attempts at copy protection presents the consumer viewpoint, as well. They point out that consumers are pissed off and make the point I’ve tried to make here many times before: copy protection does almost nothing to prevent real theives. It just makes life more annoying for Hollywood’s actual customers. That is never a good business model. If you don’t offer your customer what they want from your product, someone else will figure out a way to do so.
