There will be no problem with DRM IF it do what it´s supposed to do, that is, manage my (consumer) digital rights. It has to manage my rights to see a movie, for all my life, if i already pay to see "Mumies from Mars" in the movie theatre then i don´t have to pay to see it in DVD, or at least not the same as who didn´t see it, because i already had access to that story, to those actors in that story (i already pay to be exposed to that movie), you are supposed to charge me for the difference in resolution (eg. DVD-to-Blu-Ray), extra material, different endings. The same is valid for music, if i already pay for a song i´ll not paying for it again if it´s the same song, at the same quality. I shouldn´t be carrying a list with all my licences... the list should be online, forever AND totally fail-proof. That is fair-play, anything different from that and the piracy will continue to exist. Piracy doesn´t destroy the original copy and this propagates the idea that the pirate doesn´t harm the original owner, the original media, and let´s be honest, all those giant media companies doesn´t inspire us simpathy. You can´s use the same business model for information as 50 years ago, i have a lot more ideas on the subject and i´ll be glad to help. Sorry about my english. Daniel F. Soriano
