DRM inhibits communications

  • Created: July 06, 2004

Ultimately, telecom is about communications, not media. DRM inhibits communications. That’s the opposite of what you’re after. If we’d had DRM before the Internet became widely available, telcos would have sold a lot less dial-up and broadband, and the industry would have even more unlit fiber than it does today.

How many future broadband and FTTH sales will be lost because you can’t share a few moments of a good TV show with your granny over the Internet?
