What about other practical concerns? If your HD/Blu-ray player requires an internet/phone connection, that will require an entire infrastructure of machines on the other end to acquire and process the information. And a whole beaurocracy of people to tend to the information. Will this be up to each studio individually, or a central clearinghouse? What happens when your internet connection goes down? Or if Hollywood's servers go down? When they have a power outage? When they go out of business or on strike? Will I not be able to watch a movie in my home if there is some problem on the other end? The whole potential system is (in M*A*S*H-speak) a corporal-captain. "I don't like it. No sir, I don't like it at all."
