Bill Gates: ''Blu-ray protection scheme is very anti-consumer''

Posted on Friday, October 21 2005 @ 09:25:17 CEST by


Bill Gates said in an interview he believes the copy-protection of the Blu-ray DVD dics is very anti-consumer. He said it would make them harder to play on personal computers, explaining partly why Microsoft decided to back HD DVD instead of Blu-ray.
“The key issue here is that the protection scheme under Blu-ray is very anti-consumer and there’s not much visibility of that. The inconvenience is that the [movie] studios got too much protection at the expense consumers and it won’t work well on PCs. You won’t be able to play movies and do software in a flexible way,” Bill Gates said in an interview with The Daily Prestonian.
