Why MS bother to release this software? I believe every single sane person would and should think twice to even download this software,... what make me afraid tho' is when MS embedded this kinda thing into Windoze

The concept behind this software is not something any of us would want to encourage. I would give this a *zero* rating on that basis alone, if BetaNews allowed zeroes.

One star. guess why. MS and other firms can produce as many Rights Management Clients as they want, but this will not eradicate copyright violations. Just yesterday I heard a guy say on another forum that he couldn't play a wmv file, because it asked for a certificate. but this file was not protected, because it worked on his other computer with similar configuration. So I bet such software will only disturb valid and legitimate users, while those who really steal copyrighted content will always find a way to crack it or to find the same file which is unprotected. It's like with those protected audio cds-people can't play them on pcs, although they have bought them, while those people who download the songs from kazaa can play them everywhere without problems. There's something wrong here, isn't it?
