Nice video. Provocative post.

I actually agree with George K. on iTunes. Think about it from NBC's point of view.
- You can easily download free software to pull content off an iPod or to deauthorize any video / track.
- Steve Jobs (G-d bless him) is a supporter of deauthorizing content.
It just sets up iTunes to, in know active fault of their own, help users pirate and illegally share content.
I'm all for it, but I see why NBC wouldn't be.

I also like their offense is best defense approach. The reason the recording industry has 2X sales since 2000 is b/c they tried to chase pirates. Jack Sparrow has taught us that pirates win all the time.

NBC is smart to embrace and generate digital media. For a Goliath, they seem to be moving nimbly and on a good track.


I live by the Robin Hood theory.

Message to all conglomerates:
Deauthorize or pay! How's that for irony!
