Here it comes again. I really wish I knew where the pipes led from big media companies, because they LOVE to flush billions of dollars down the toilet without a second thought. It another effort to curb piracy, this time specific to HD media, Fox and Warner Brothers have tag teamed with Western Digital and Sandisk to form the SCSA (Secure Content Storage Association). They are looking for new ways to lock your content, get this, while being 'invisible to users'.  How about this? Instead of wasting all this money, drop the DRM and spend your money on coming up with an iTunes killer. Apple has proven over and over again that people are willing to pay for good content with a good solution that allows them to put their media where they want to. You're NEVER going to stop piracy, and the money being spent is not increasing revenues nor is it...
