Does Sony really believe it has the right to censor what is being produced on ‘Blue-Ray’ discs?
“no manufacturer would take [pornographic content], citing fears that Sony would cancel production licences with any facility printing pornography” (ITweek)
what if Adobe censored images being saved as a PDF? wouldn’t people just switch to a competitor?
and Sony has a real competitor, one that it should be afraid of – especially after the lessons of VHS vs Betamax where the inferior brand won.
the only saving grace that I can see for Sony is that some manufacturers are producing dual Blue-ray/HD-DVD players and discs – that might keep them in the market for a little longer.
