Just a quick thought that came to mind while reading some of the HTML5 vs Flash banter. One of the big pluses of Flash video is DRM. HTML5 doesn’t support DRM. But wasn’t it just a few years ago we were shouting down with DRM for mp3s? People were pissed they were buying music from iTunes but it only worked on iPods & iPhones.
So the RIAA is evil for enforcing DRM in our music and we revolt against that, but we bash HTML5 for not supporting DRM to protect the networks and MPAA? Maybe we should start pushing for no DRM on video as well?
