Lack of a DRM “ecosystem” will lead to piracy

“I understand that if we frustrate the consumer, they will simply pirate the content,” he said. “The issue we face today is that consumers are buying content that uses specific DRM and that, in turn, is gradually creating a world of separate DRM systems.”

Hunt said the MPAA recognized the need to create an interoperability DRM solution (or, a DRM ecosystem as he described it) and said that “the consumer, if he or she has already purchased licensed material, should certainly be able to transfer that content to any other new or old device.”
