The End of the Replication Wars?

More on Phoenix's new (MS driven) strategy: building 'trusted' computing into the BIOS. I can't believe the Slashdot crowd isn't up in arms over this - this will end the replication wars dead. At least for a while.

"...More controversially, Phoenix said manufacturers will be able to prevent users from tampering with areas of the system used for copy protection. Phoenix recently said it is touting a BIOS with built-in DRM technology to major PC manufacturers.

In September, the company said it had developed a prototype of its CME including DRM from Orbid. The DRM would allow content providers to identify which PCs and devices are authorized to play particular files, more effectively controlling content distribution, file-trading and moving software from one machine to another, according to Phoenix."
