Mating BeyondTV with DRM?

You get some weird chimaera like this, I think. I wish them the best of luck, but I rilly don't think getting involved in DRM is clever.

You either have to do it properly, like these guys, or you go off half-cocked. If you do a half-baked job, you are effectively admitting responsibility for how your software is used, but are still failing to protect the owners of the IP. Ergo, you can be sued for negligence.

I think it's their responsibility to protect their IP, not the people that operate the infrastructure over whioch they deliver it.

Thats why its a "plug-in" its then upto them to go off harf cocked... we just ask a small fee for facilertation. The whole money side is based, as most open source projects, on support and custam code advice/wrighting. Which anyone involved in the project can make there living from if they need to.
