That's right, we haven't even got the whole digital music thing down yet, there are still plenty of questions, but here comes the video tidal wave anyway. With Amazon
offering their respective services or Netflix
and now Wal-Mart
getting ready for prime time, we will soon (as consumers) have video out the wazoo, whether we like it or not. I fear we will have the whole DRM/fair use debate and issues all over again, but the heat of these issues will intensify. Questions bombard the mind like a science-lab particle out of control. Who will reign supreme? Who has the most downloads? Who has the best flexibility and security on downloads? Should downloads be ad supported or paid for? Will the MPAA have the same issues and be involved in lawsuits on a grand scale? Will studios co-operate? Does Blu-Ray vs. HD-DVD even matter if the trend is moving to digital downloads and hard drive or flash based players? Will traditional media CDs, DVDs be a thing of the past? This is just the beginning. Here we go again.
