DRM and the BBC

I listened to the BBC Backstage podcast this weekend. Lots to think about there. The BBC can't just give away its programs, 'cos it doesn't have the rights, and isn't likely to any time soon.

But then again, DRM can't be the answer, really. Not because it's evil - though it is - but because it doesn't work.

What is a no-brainer, though, is that whatever the BBC chooses to go with has to be cross platform. Mac and Linux users pay their licence fees too, you know!
