Stand-alone version of the video interview of Ashley Highfield, Director Future Media and Technology, BBC.
“The Open Source Consortia (sic) have already made their case to the Trust and to Ofcom, who have said there is no case to answer. I’m more than happy to engage with the OSC in meaningful debate but as they themselves said, in an ideal world the BBC wouldn’t have DRM, Digital Rights Management, on it’s programmes.
We don’t live in an ideal world. We simply wouldn’t be able to offer the iPlayer unless our rights holders were happy that we were protecting their content.”
