AfterDawn: Tech news

SDMI took a big step backwards

SDMI, a group that tries to agree on terms and technologies of future music copy-protection, failed to agree on standards that should be used in future portable devices and CDs.
Group that has members from record labels, technology companies and consumer groups, has been working two years in order to develop a standard for music copy-protection.

Yesterday's meeting that didn't solve any problems related to technologies and standards, is of course a victory for companies who have developed music copy-protection of their own -- and of course for MP3 fans, who are afraid of secure formats.
