+ - Regulator blocks BBC DRM plans->

Submitted by TheRaven64
TheRaven64 (641858) writes "The BBC's plans to introduce DRM for over-the-air digital broadcasts were today dealt a setback when the regulator, Ofcom, asked them the same question that has been asked of many DRM systems; 'how does this benefit the consumer?' The letter to the BBC is quoted in the article as saying that "Ofcom received a large number of responses to this consultation, in particular from consumers and consumer groups, who raised a number of potentially significant consumer 'fair use' and competition issues that were not addressed in our original consultation." This does not end the chance of the BBC being allowed to introduce DRM in the future, but it at least delays their opportunity to do so."
