DRM Prevents AppleTV From Working On Some Hardware
from the thank-you,-DRM dept
Kevin Stapp writes “The infinite wisdom of the entertainment industry has decided to place DRM on AppleTV downloads that can make the content incompatible with many hardware configurations. If your hardware doesn’t support HDCP you can’t watch content you legitimately rented via AppleTV. Now that’s a great way to treat a PAYING customer.” This seems to happen all too frequently these days. DRM isn’t being used to prevent copying, but it sure does make life a lot more difficult for users. Whatever happened to Steve Jobs being against DRM? Oh, right, that was only for music, not video.
