Macrovision to Jobs: translated

Macrovision does video DRM. After Jobs wrote his open letter to the music industry, the Macrovision CEO responded protecting DRM. I say that Jobs did much better, and he sides with the consumer. One person has already translated it to plain english. Sample:
Truly interoperable DRM will hasten the shift to the electronic distribution of content and make it easier for consumers to manage and share content in the home — and it will enable it in an open environment where their content is portable across a number of devices, not held hostage to just one company’s products.
Magic interoperable DRM would give people all the features and capabilities they get with DRM-free media.
Almost everything in that letter is completely backward from reality. Everything that he says should be done is the opposite of what consumers want.

Funny how things can appear to be fine when scanned over, but have that annoying hidden message when you read it closely.
