This is the reason why the film and media industry is imploding, not piracy. It ignored, then fought the technology and now is fighting people who used to be their markets. Not a good way to buttress a business model. Bring on the museum tours…

    Even weirder, the audience funded BBC also believe they have to take pains to prevent the programmes their customers paid for from reaching those customers.

    What makes it so weird, is that unlike the film industry, they’re not even in the business of selling copies (except latterly as a minor business on the side). They have direct funding from their customers with a direct distribution channel back to them, and yet they have problems with the idea that their customers may be entitled to actually receive what they paid for.

    The BBC spent £6,000,000 on DRM based technology iPlayer precisely so that it could make delivery via the Internet less functional and less convenient than spending nothing and letting their customers use BitTorrent (which they do anyway).

    Copyright must give corporations brain damage. Nothing else can explain this counter-productive corporate folly.
