This reminds me of what happen with music. Consumers were frustrated with having to pay high prices for a few good songs and the music industry (still) takes advantage of consumers. Often packaging recycled CD's with a couple of new songs. iTunes has changed that, offering more freedom of choice at the expense of sound quality. People still pirate music mind you as technology has far advanced counter measures to stop it.

That's really where we are at, a global market that is easily connected and easy to grab whatever your heart desires. In the process they have made it more cumbersome for people who do want to do the right thing. Putting in DRM, having to be connected and so on. It still doesn't excuse those who don't pay for their content.
