Editorial I hear often that when something new appears that "competition is good". The primary reasons competition is seen as good, are: it drives down prices; it gives consumers more choice; it pushes technology forward, quicker. Competition is not good because: competition is why consumers have to choose between HD-DVD and BluRay; competition is why DRM exists; and more. In this article, each of the supposed benefits of competition will be looked at in more detail.

"Greed is why consumers have to choose between HD-DVD and BluRay; HD DVD would be alone if Sony didn't have a history of wanting to make more money pushing their special systems with their restrictive licenses."

That's moronic and delusional. Do you think out of all the players involved in these two competing formats, it's just Sony that is doing wrong?

Ever heard of Microsoft? They have a like of prioprietary that would make even Sony blush. And for every Sony format, there is one or more other formats - all proprietary! Reality check indeed.
