Analysis of Why New DVDs Will Fail
“The new DVD formats have been designed to be the product the movie industry wants: expensive, impossible to copy and based on discs useless outside the country they were bought in. Precisely what consumers don’t want.
“When I buy a CD today I make a perfect copy which I store to a hard drive on my desk and use that copy to make a compressed copy I can carry around in my iPod. The physical CD then goes into its box forever (I don’t buy my music online because it’s crippled by DRM and the sound quality’s too low to invest thousands of dollars in).
“People want to do the same thing with their movies.”
