Just saw this article about Kodi/DRM

There is a LOT of misinformation out there.
Some of it is just plain false. Some of it is the result of misunderstanding.

I saw one report that said that Kodi would play ONLY drm protected content.
It was very quickly shot down by other readers and a correction was made within a few hours.
However, anyone who read the original article and did not return to see the correction will have a very bad idea of this proposal.



As I see it, the problem with getting people like Netflix on board is going to be copyright laws - again.
A lot of their content is copyrighted to be viewed only in certain areas. (The Netflix US library is almost 100 times the size of the Australian library)
How do they write those geographical restrictions into an add-on?
Is that even possible? (I can barely spell add-on let alone create one!)

The world is now a global community and until content providers can find a solution to the fragmented copyright situation we have now, rights management and piracy will continue to be major issues.
