Kind of on the topic, hopefully without promoting illegal activity.... How do those places like Vongo, and now Netflix, protect the downloadable movies they are offering? With all the anti-piracy stuff going on now, you'd think the movie people would be thrpowing a bright-blue hissy fit over these people...

As far as I know they use a proprietary format that only works with their software and is tied to the software serial number.

I've never used iTunes, but the proprietary format idea makes sense. I'm sure someone'* already got a work around, though...



Not fishing for hints, just so'* the mods can reat assure we're not heading down the wrong track. Just being curious. I personally can't see sitting at my computer to watch a movie....
