Nokia Exec To Developers: Embrace DRM & Digital Locks Because I Say So
from the very-convincing dept
Ben S writes in to highlight a rather unconvincing talk given by a Nokia VP trying to explain to open source developers why they need to embrace DRM, intellectual property, digital locks and subsidies in the mobile world. However, his reasoning basically amounts to "because I say so."
"Why do we need closed vehicles? We do. Some of these things harm the industry but they're here [as things stand]."In other words, there's no actual reason to use these things, other than that Nokia says you must -- even though it knows such things harm the industry. Way to show leadership in the mobile industry. No wonder it seems like most innovation in the mobile space is coming from folks other than Nokia.
