Re: [kFW] Re: Response: DRM and Kendra...
The issues that I see Richard raising and my thoughts:
- content owners and content consumers should have equal rights when it
comes to what one can do with the content. My take is that content owners
will place "requirements for usage" (restrictions) on the content they
provide and their relationship with the consumer. And the content consumer
will place "requirements for usage" on the content they obtain and their
relationship with the owner. Where the "requirements for usage" are the
same (compatible) then the content will flow - there's an agreement between
the consumer and owner.
- There appear to be "laws that prohibit free software from implementing
DRM". I guess we need more information those laws and on exactly what
restrictions Richard is against. That would help clarify the situation a lot.
