Toshiba launches new DRM initiative

Toshiba has created a new Digital Rights Management system based upon an encrypted SD card. The system is intended to allow access to content on any system that features an SD slot.

Mark my words, this too will crash and burn. They still don’t get the fact that if they insist on these inane rituals of copy-protection, people will simply stay away in droves.
