Wonder if they've fixed the other vulnerabilities in their product yet?

If they think they will have to shut down their service every time an exploit in Microsoft's DRM is discovered, they must not be planning to be selling many movies in the future.

Nobody likes Microsoft, and nobody likes DRM. Makes sense that even fewer people would like the two in the same sentence.

Theres a dilbert comic that sort of illustrates this quite nicely.

Quote:
Dilbert announced his intention to create a "new technology to prevent kids from seeing smut on the Internet" (1/23/96), Dogbert replied, "So, you're pitting your intelligence against the collective sex drive of all the teenagers who own computers?" Dilbert asked, defensively (or obtusely), "What is your point?" Dogbert countered with another (rhetorical) question: "Did you know that if you put a little hat on a snowball it can last a long time in hell?"
