[PCA]UltraViolet: will this convince pirates to stop pirating? - Page 4

Sounds like more restrictive nonsense with the sole intention of milking money from us consumers.

I thought this thing sounded kinda cool until i noticed "UltraViolet device" Knowing media companies, that is not gonna be your old PC or TV, but rather a whole new stupid box to place under your TV.

That's the direction they should take it, so that the end-user doesn't have to jump through a hoop to access the content like being connected to the internet or having to input a serial key, or being located in a certain place etc. It should simply be like it isn't there.

6 users max...not going to stop pirates.
Have to download a copy in different format for each device...screw that!
Probably some ridiculous DRM scheme...no thanks.

Get the average internet users bandwidth up (*waves at U.S. ISPs*), and eliminate the physical medium altogether IMO.
With the proper infrastructure, streaming 1080p+ would not be an issue.

@ OP, But no, this in and of itself won't prevent pirating.
However, I think it would be interesting if they tried some sort of in-movie advertising model in exchange for watching the movie freely.
Not unlike if you watch movies via cable/satellite, instead of the traditional pay to own (DVD/BluRay), pay to play (PPV/etc) models.

The big studios have a new weapon in the battle against TV and movie piracy. It’s called UltraViolet and is a new distribution platform that allows lifetime access to digital files via a web-based account and playback on all compatible devices.
The group hopes that the big selling point will be the ability to access purchased content on any UltraViolet device including streaming and download for off-line playback to wireless devices via an online storage portal at home or on the go.
UltraViolet relies on users registering for a free account, but then limits to a maximum of six users access to the content as well as tying the Ultraviolet devices to the content. This suggests that the studios are still trying to come to terms with digital delivery models and copyright control by tying users in knots in perpetuity.
Those 3 things kill it for me, and I hope many others.

Stop treating your paying customers like criminals.

hmmm


so someone who downloads movies for free will be more tempted to pay for the DVD or Blu Ray so they can watch it online?


Hey if you buy this car instead of stealing it you can have unlimited access to it.

Akin to HDCP? Of course, HDCP came out around the same time HDTVs & Blu-ray did. It had the benefit of people going out and buying these massive TVs and blu-ray players so it could spread far and wide.

So, the question is: what will drive people to buy UltraViolet-compatible devices? DVD Players don't break that often. 3D is still in its early years (assuming it'll have the same "got to have it" hype that 1080p did). These companies are going to be waiting another decade, if not longer, before they have serious market penetration without a catalyst (assuming they started today) before they can start with the "if it's not UltraViolet-compatible you can't play this disc."

It used to be acceptable that each time a film came out on a new medium, we would re-purchase the film in the new format. I don't think that's gonna fly any more. If I buy a film, I should be able to play it on any device that offers movie playing capability. Forever.
