What would you say if we told you that there are people out there that want to make sharing your media between devices over a home network illegal?
You’re talking nonsense, you would say fanning off our claims with a wave of the hand and a shrug of the shoulders.
But according to Jim Burger, a Washington, D.C attorney who deals with piracy in the broadcasting industry, broadcasters want to do just that.
Cioe’, secondo questo avvocato, se un utente licenzia un contenuto per un dispositivo (diciamo iPod) e poi lo vuole fruire su un altro dispositivo (diciamo stereo), anche se ciò avviene in casa propria, questi signori vorrebbero essere pagati
Speaking to Inside Digital Media’s Phil Leigh during the site’s latest Podcast, Burger spoke on how the broadcasting industry is keen to put controls on sharing media between devices even if those devices are on a home network and even if the sharing is strictly for personal use.
When pressed as to why broadcasters would want to do this, Burger replied simply ‘because they want you to pay for that right’.
Perche’ ? perchè vogliono che l’utente paghi per quel diritto.
