Viacom: Wrong On Almost Every Thing

Techdirt: Viacom: Wrong On Almost Every Thing

I just read a very good article over at Techdirt about a speech given by Viacom's CEO, Philippe Dauman. I don't know how he felt after giving this speech, but, personally, I'd feel quite sick after seeing the same amount of crap spew out of my mouth.

Seriously, just look at his comment about how DRM will usher in an "unprecedented period of creative output across the globe" -- isn't that exactly what DRM prevents? How is anyone supposed to be creative when all media is locked down in proprietary formats on specific hardware?

It boggles the fucking mind, I tell you.
