UK Government Advised to Promote and Adopt DRM
Consider the situation where data storage is virtually free.
Whenever I meet a friend I could copy ALL his movies and sound files. And it will be fast. And everybody will have 1000s or millions of media files. So its only an issue to get the really new stuff. And if anybody buys anything they can "give" it to all their friends. In such a system there is no longer any need for "the net".
