''Intel didn't want DRM for Viiv platform''

Posted on Thursday, September 01 2005 @ 11:01:17 CEST by


The Inquirer heard an interesting detail regarding Intel's and Microsoft negotiations for the Viiv platform but they aren't so sure whether it is true at all..
The question that has been rattling around in my head for a bit was why would Intel not simply build a better mouse trap rather than burden their users with DRM?

The answer surprised me when I heard it. It seems the negotiations between Intel and Microsoft to get MS on board initially had Intel taking a fairly strong anti-DRM stance. Every time Intel said no, Microsoft pulled out a proverbial Athlon 64, laid it on the table, and said something like 'they are on board'. Powerful argument that.
