said by djrobx:Huge difference between DRM and previews on DVDs, this discussion is about previews. Personally I don't give 2 shits if you want to make copies of your DVDs for personal use. Doesn't matter to me.
Yes it's an issue. The music industry learned this lesson the hard way. They tried offering DRM-locked music and it didn't fly with consumers because they could pirate convenient, universally usable music.
They were forced to offer consumers what they really wanted. MP3s and DRM-free iTunes downloads.
