South Park legal downloads

This is the way of the future.  Viacom has agreed to make South Park available legitimately online for no charge, but will be profit sharing on advertising from the websites you download them from.

They have correctly worked out that we are now in a global market and the moment an episode comes out in the US, people all around the world want to view it.  And the only way to do that has been illegal file sharing, so of course people  do that rather than wait six months.

And talking of downloads Peter Griffin blogs on how DRM may be in its dying days, with Walmart now offering DRM free music.   And the irony is that the NZ Parliament is about to pass a law giving special legal protection to DRM technology.
