DRM Required By Law? That's a Good One
In one of the most curious twists of logic, MRT Technologies is threatening a lawsuit against Microsoft, Adobe, Real and Apple because they do not use anti stream ripping technology in their media players. MRT makes anti streaming technology, by the way. The company seems to think that because stream rippers abound and these companies fail to protect content providers with adequate DRM they will be liable under the DMCA. To them. By that logic, anyone should be able to sue these companies. Even the litigation happy RIAA never took that tack, and they probably would have more standing in court to allege a DMCA violation than this self-serving entity.
