Big Media still stuck in the 1900’s

DVD licensing group to vote on closing copying loophole

Here’s the best quote that sums up the whole thing nicely:

The proposed amendment is another indication of how out of touch Big Content is with the desires of consumers, and the DVD CCA’s attempts to alter the license at this stage of the game seems rather absurd, especially given the fact that the CSS DRM in question has long since been defeated. It’s like trying to close the barn door after the horses have left—and been replaced by the automobile.

Exactly, why worry about CSS when it’s been years since people have been putting movies on their iPods, Zune’s and Hard Drives, everyone knows you’re pissed you missed the boat on technology, dry your eye, get over it and maybe try and find a way to make money with new technology instead of ancient technology.
