Engadget is reporting that the DVD Copyright Control Agency is allowing certain content to be distributed electronically and burned to ONE disc or viewing. Older DVD hardware will not be able to read these discs due to the special anti-copying encoding and they will cost more than standard DVDs.

So what is the fricken point!?! When will these agencies learn that the future of media is in backing off of DRM systems. People in general will pay for a product if it is of quality and a fair price over going through the trouble of copying it.

They will NEVER stop piracy, ever. These DRM schemes will only hurt consumers as pirates will always find countermeasures to any DRM system.
