I think industry only stops caring once their fear is gone and they
are making money.

Weren't VHS tapes considered the doom of the industry until rental
stores came into existence?

It took Apple to get the music industry to even consider selling their
content online.  And that was with DRM.

Overcoming industry's fear of losing money is a long row to hoe,
and I'd rather not give up the rights of Canadians while waiting
for them to see the light.  Let them try their DRM experiment,
but let's not put it in law.

But I certainly would support people voting with their wallets.
It's why I seem to lack any urgency at all in buying something as
simple as HDMI video.
