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.

REAL Competition is good... look at the recent pay offs to HDDVD...

If it wasn't for the backhanding, lobbying and Sony having its mitts in an entrenched media market we may not have had this issue to begin with!!

Fair competition is ALWAYS good
