Fascinating article that reveals how the movie industry's control-freak paranoia that treats all third-parties as criminals has as a corollary the degradation of the movie experience for paying customers becuase projectionists turn out to be untrusted third-parties who have to be controlled with ridiculous degrees of technical measures. If it's this hard to change lenses, imagine how hard it will be to preserve the movie in the future after the business model that's driven the technical measures has died.

Well worth taking the time to read this story of the attempt by Thomas Edison to take control of the nascent movie industry using patent suits, an industry association as a heavy-handed enforcer and then a patent pool as the weapon against any company daring to innovate or meet actual customer demand.
Yes, there is nothing new in the actions of Paul Allen, the RIAA or of MPEG-LA, it's all been done before. Reading this really leaves me wondering why massive patent reform hasn't happened already.

All the arguments about "protecting rights" come to nothing when you realise that a ripped copy of a movie is far better to watch than the spam-laden version you can buy in a store. I have the same gripe about satellite TV in the UK - why should it be stuffed with advertising if I am paying to watch it?
