Content providers are completely clueless!

They're trying it AGAIN! 'You can play a movie but you NEVER own it!'
After THIRTY years of TV-on-demand where the same mantra holds, they
keep reinventing the same thing over and over: content providers don't
want you to own a physical disc because it's protected by law that you
own it and you can do with it what you want. Not so with digital
downloads. The content providers owns it and they can revoke your right
to play it at any time.
This new system, UltraViolet, tries to hook into the newest fad of the
day: the Cloud. You don't own your movies but they're stored in the
Cloud and when they tell you so you may watch them by streaming
(heavily encrypted and protected, off course). Eventually they'll
probably try to change the licensing such that every time you press the
'Play' button, a couple of bucks is deducted from your bank account.
