let me rephrase.  Every move the content producers have (ever) made is
to protect their "content".  I'm not arguing whether they should or
not, fact is they do.  So, I propose to comprise on something that
works and allows the functionality we all want, instead of the cable
companies devising their own (closed) solutions that don't work and
forcing these "solutions" on their customers (because there is no
other alternative).
