Ofcom consultation about BBC DRM

Interesting, see this link on the reg

Ofcom are asking people if the BBC should be allowed to apply their proposed  programme listing DRM. Whether responding will do any good, I don’t know, but it can’t do any harm…

Note that as they’re not proposing DRMing the *content*, just the programme guide (by restricting knowledge of the decompression tables) . It won’t affect me or my recording system whatsoever, in fact, I’d give it about a week till someone figures out the missing information and releases it 🙂

It could be viewed as the start of a slippery slope though.
