After seeing a lot of posts about getting media from sites such as
bbc.co.ukworking I saw this on the Nottingham LUGs mailing list:
The BBC iPlayer - which provides access to BBC programming for up to
30 days after it's aired - will be released as a Windows only
application, including DRM facilities to restrict users rights, for at
least the first 2 years of the service.
The Open Source Consortium is running a campaign against the release of
the Windows only iPlayer product - including a formal complaint to the
EU on the issue.
To show your support for this issue, please take a moment to sign this
and show your support to the OSC by posting us a message (via the
Contact Us area of the website), or joining the OSC:
Please feel free to forward this message to any groups or mailing lists
that may be interested in our campaign.
