You're right and what DRM does is completely ILLEGAL in EU. And the complaints of users will have success at court.
But the problem HERE with the graphical card is much WORSE. The problem, you're speaking about, concerns users that want to buy DRM content.
But I don't!
I hate modern music! (It's only rhythm without soul. I'm singing gregorian chant myself.)
I hat cinema. I NEVER go to cinema. The world of hollywood is a completely artifical and insane world.
I never buy DVD's. I've even no player (but now I can play them with my laptop. I've tested and it works.)
I only want to look GOOD TV all over the world. (My local TV is miserable). DRM is FORBIDDEN for public TV in Europe. Also I want to look FREETV all over the world.
This will need h.264 in the future (DVB-H).
But the DRM industry blocks MY graphical card!!!
Only because of money. Money for films and music that I hate.
The only good thing is that they block themselfs on Linux. Linux users will look divX if there is no usefull h.264 decoder accessible. No Linux User will buy DRM content.
This will make GROW the piratery (with converted divX).
This will help Windows. Because there are no restrictions on hardware decoders.
