I also forgot to mention the third problem, which is the content producers approach with DRM. Their idea is they can limit your use of content in any way they please. Clearly, from a legal perspective, this is correct. But do you think consumers will accept this? If I buy a song from iTunes that uses Apple's proprietary DRM, and I want to play that song on my car's CD player - guess what: I can't - and I have to buy the song again. What if in a few years, there is another DRM standard - guess what - I have to buy the song again. This is just what content owners want - they want you to buy their content like Dixie cups. Buy something, use it for a little while, throw it away, but it again, etc.
