    Its seems that the studios like the two tiered rental and purchase markets and would not be surprised to see that continue into the future as other business models form. The studios make more $$$ from a purchase, weather its a digital or physical file (or stream) it doesnt make a difference the dollars made are still higher when it comes to purchase.

    Commercial browser producers can make locks all they want but that wont keep people who make independent software from folding or discontinuing work on their projects.
    Unfortunately for content producers, any DRMS are just candy for the code kids who love cracking them.
