Content Insider #539 - Taking It Back By Miles Weston I don't like DRM for content but I really hate the idea that people think all video - mini-series, series, documentary, movie - should be free to watch and enjoy. Folks like to justify stealing (and that's what it is...) because they're taking in from fat-cat networks, studios, SVOD services. No it's simpler than that you are taking money from indie filmmakers, audio/post people and industry tradespeople. People I know and like for their excellent creative talent. Want the stuff free? Watch it with the periodic ad breaks and appreciate that marketers made that entertainment available to you. When you don't pay Netflix, Hulu, Vimeo, Amazon, Sky and others; those companies can't invest in more projects with video creatives so you'll be stuck with cat/dog and stupid guy stuff. Think about the people who do the work. Stealing from filmmakers sucks! ...Read More »

Content Insider #536 - Open Access By Miles Weston We live on the Internet -- communicating with people around the globe, researching stuff for articles, skimming over the free video stuff the kids post on YouTube and Facebook, streaming content to the big screen in the family room. We even stream subscription shows from Netflix and Amazon Plus as well as transaction documentaries from Vimeo. It's great to catch up on content like this even though our service provider doesn't exactly let us watch 4K in 4K but rather something that is a little smaller that travels more easily OTT. Had to explain to the kids that unlimited data plans from our "favorite" carrier is only their version of unlimited not what you or I call unlimited. Of course it's always nice to know that "they" are keeping track of what you're watching/doing on the Internet...for our own good. ...Read More »
