Hollywood whines

These two pieces in USA Today report on "ClearPlay," one of a number of new technologies and services (mostly coming out of Utah) that remove objectionable content from DVD movies.

The Directors' Guild of America is complaining that this violates the rights of the "artists," and they are suing ClearPlay and others for copyright infringement. What a bunch of whiners. (And where have they been for the last 30 years while their movies were edited for TV and airplanes?)

Fortunately, I think they'll lose in the courts. Plus, congress is threatening to get involved. I think ClearPlay is here to stay.
