Old Fashioned Licensing is Crippling New Video Business Models Technorati icon

January 20, 2007 | Filed under:

Wonderland is reporting that C4 in the UK have just released a product that will allow users to download C4 shows on demand to their PC - 4oD. I love C4 and dived at the chance to watch their stuff from Australia and I was very happy to pay.

But I can't because I am not in the UK. They can't accept my money. I am assuming this is because of the old fashioned terms of their licenses which will be limited to UK audiences.

When is this going to fixed? It's fundamental. The internet is here to stay people and caging our media into geographically restricted borders is plain silly.
