ETech – All Complex Ecosystems Have Parasites

Cory Doctorow
Ten year old CDs can be ripped, burned, made into ring tones, used in other ways. With ten year old DVDs all you can do is watch them. Can’t save them to your HD, can’t insert yourself with a video app into your favorite movie scene. If you want to build anything new in hollywood, approval to make a movie is made by a handful of people. But still DRM has not stopped infringement. These are 100% failure systems. Industry is out to control parasites in the system. But it will always fail. Cory read his talk so it was pretty hard to take notes. Luckily he posted it. Definitely recommended.
