3 Strikes

Was checking out videos on Funimations website today and checked out the download video function and realized something. You can only activate, move, etc. the video file 3 times.

This is a poor model for dealing with digital videos and DRM. For those who have many systems or reformat this posses a problem. I understand this is a method so their product doesn’t go viral on the net but it just tempt more people to hack the DRM.

The better method would be to tie the files to accounts thus only allowing files played if users are logged in.

While I would prefer prices to be cheaper I think iTunes has a good method. Viz has seen this and that why they have their shows on iTunes.

I hope companies can get their shit together and figure out digital soon.
