Is this of interest ? Do we have use cases from this ?
Since Sony recently joined our OASIS TC this announcement certainly raises
lots of issues for us to deal with, especially those relating to the scope of
the Stefik patents on which Content Guard relies.
How can Sony say in this announcement:
Sony believes in "OpenMG X" as an open platform technology that should
support the secure distribution of content,
if the Stefik patents cover all rights languages? I think we are wasting our
time here if we continue to act as if we can develop a technical spec without
resolving the clear conflicts about patents here. At a minimum I want to
understand what Sony means by "open platform."
