Hi all,

anyone who is interested in the BBC's new iplayer and on-demand on-line 
product strategy should try to visit their website and contribute to the 
consultation. There are a couple of key issues for Linux users:

Their reliance on DRM, and their seemingly short-sighted proposal to 
only support the iPlayer on Microsoft software (and possibly MACs).

Their report, the overview of what they are planning and an on-line form 
are all available from here:

Cheers

Alan
