RustyJ (145) I guess less DRM as it just drives paying customers away. More streaming but as an option for mobiles and such, not as a restriction I hope.

I know I will never pay for a site that doesn't allow DRM free download. I quit Fame Digital because the hd quality was not downloadable.

mbaya (356) DRM has no future. Fewer and fewer sites still have it.

Jay G (65) DRM has died in music downloads at Amazon.com, etc, and I'm buying music again. Paranoid webmasters will keep trying to limit what the customer receives, but those who are more customer friendly will always do well.

Remember when Disney tried to stop the VCR from existing because folk would steal their movies by taping them? The supreme court sided against Disney and now Disney makes millions selling videos that wouldn't be legal if they had won the case.

elonlybuster (39) DRM is a plague. More and more people are hearing about it and avoiding it. At most it will stay at the same level, but I highly expect it to drop as it is right now.

Denner (233) I say less - no pornusers can live with it - and sites, that still keep it, will not prosper, to say the least...

t9chome (0) DRM is one of those All or Nothing type things. Unless everyone jumps onboard, it doesn't work. Those who don't participate win.

pat362 (371) I picked less DRM but more streaming. I fear that some sites will choose to go that route because we know that DRM videos can be broken so why would a site spend the money. Your average porn viewer might not try to break the encryption but anyone looking to steal content will so that he can post it on his tube site.

I don't join sites that have DRM but I am a member of a couple of sites that have streaming content. It's pay as you watch system and I'd rather be able to download their content but that not an option. I use them because they have content that's not available elsewhere.

messmer (137) I also picked less DRM but more streaming only because SCORE seem to go that way and they are not exactly small fry. If they are going to be successful is another question. Maybe they will lose part of their business (us) and gain owners of handheld devices???

turboshaft (24) Hmm, I was going to say more because of all the piracy and tube sites but it looks like I might be alone, but what else can so easily protect content?

Sometimes I wonder, if the porn industry is huge and still growing (uh, no pun intended...), but so many of its products are enjoyed free of charge, there must a ton of people privately getting their fill of good ol' dirty entertainment, and I mean a lot more than we think. : - )

james4096 (126) I say less. Well, I hope there will be less, otherwise I'll quit buying.
Seriously I think DRM is on it's way out. Huge backlash every time a site uses it.

RustyJ (145) REPLY TO #12 - turboshaft :

Well, the truth is that DRM does not protect against piracy. It just prevents fair use. Same applies to most copy protection methods. They are just an extra trouble for the one who bought his stuff fair but it all gets removed by pirates letting those who just download for free enjoy better product than those who paid.

Excellent point. I hope internet site producers realize this. They're punishing paying customers. Bootleggers will bootleg. DRM may make it a bit tougher for the average joe to produce a pirate copy, but most people just download the pirated music and videos or cracked software after just one shady guy rips it.

yote78 (5) Content providers would be foolish to push DRM, although I could easily see them going to lower download limits and a move toward streaming rather than downloads.
