They plan to use MS DRM.

See now they spoiled it, what sell outs torrent have become the gold standard for distributing open source software and and open source formats and to sell out to MS AND DRM sucks. I suppose you just cant resist the money forever. DRM is utterly pointless any fool can bypass it and it makes the media more expensive making people LESS likely to buy it. The whole DRM model is fundamentally flawed in so many ways most DRM systems are now cracked before they hit the market whats the point.

While I do support what they are trying to do with DRM, its not working. The legal buyers are those who are punished, like why should you buy a song and only be able to play it on one player, or a movie that you downloaded and you can only watch it on your computer, not your DVD player on your home theater system. While I do support their efforts that fact is thats its 1 programmer versus 1000s others. The only way to stop illegal transfers is for ISP to prevent the access of P2P's, I'm sure blocking specific coding from accessing specific ports and such shouldn't be that hard, but it probably is more complicated then what meets my eye. The thing is if you don't charge unessisairy amounts of money we wouldn't be here in the first place. Also if Microsoft and Sony still believe in DRM and that it'll stop illegal coping, I'm sure their hopes died with he announcement of the crack 1 month ago and now another decrypted (no need for names) announcing that it can down Crack DRM on both Blue-ray and HD-DVD. Major hit for them, maybe lowering costs will result in lower piracy, after all everyone likes the real thing over the fake.
