Submission + - BBC's download plans approved

An anonymous reader writes: The BBC reports that following approval from the BBC Trust (an independent oversight body) they are now allowed to release their "iPlayer", enabling the download and viewing of BBC owned content such as Doctor Who. Unfortunately the Trust also mandated the use of DRM to enforce a 30 day playable period, and exempted classical music performances from being made available. There will now be a 2 month consultation period. According to one of the trustees, the Trust "could still change its mind if there was a public outcry and it was backed up by evidence".
