Point taken. And to be fair, I think there was talk at one point 
about putting a lock signal in the NTSC output of a VHS tape that 
would be picked up by another VCR to prevent copying. I do not how 
far this idea made it into the wild.

I do agree with your point that consumers of digital media would be 
(and are) unfairly impacted by measures intended to fight piracy, the 
black market in illegal copies of content. The legal consumers become 
collateral damage.

Apologies.
