Mac OS X is becoming, whether by design or by accident, a Digital Rights
Management operating system where the rights in question are the user's
rights--and they are expansive. Apple's Digital Hub concept continues to
take shape in the OS, the add-on applications and third-party
products such as EyeTV, typically enhancing the user's ability to
do what he or she wants.
Dan Gillmor moderates a panel that considers the issues: Can this distinctly pro-customer approach continue in the face of Hollywood's ire and the entertainment industry's clout in Congress? Will Apple copy Microsoft and build harsh DRM for copyright owners into the system?
