In a better world, the MPD would not have the copyright; they would have hired a private company to produce the video and license it to them. Ideally with contract terms requiring the private company to police unauthorized use of the video.
This sounds awesome. It would just take a $2 billion dollar, 5 year software project that ends up costing $4.5 billion and takes 9 years and is still incomplete, and we are good to go!
Or, you know, they could get some people interested in automating their tax filing to start an open source project that would end up accomplishing the same goal in a hundredth the man-hours and a tenth of the time.
I'm reading that paragraph completely differently. To me, it is saying there is a carve out for "slowing down an end user’s connection to the Internet" if chosen by the end user, but *only* if it is not content-specific. So the user choice provision simply doesn't apply.
I'm not sure how you are interpreting "In contrast" that you reach a different conclusion.
