Why Can't I Play My Music Everywhere?
"Politics and greed" are the main reasons, or so says The Reg's Andrew Orlowski. Not much new here - Orlowski is just recounting the sad reality that the hardware, software, networks and so on to allow a person to stream music he owns to himself anywhere have been ready to go for years. All that stands in the way are the fears and greed of the copyright holders. I get so tired of saying this, but it's still true - the customer experience is paramount. Making more isolated sandboxes and throwing up more barriers to transcoding and transport will not increase revenue. Really.
