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.

DRM does not exist because of competition, it's greed and if anything, competition will get rid of it when/if the market (consumers) opt for COMPETING non-drm providers.

Most retarded article I have read in a while.
Mr. Krock Camen, nothing personal but this article is a Krock of shite. OSNews should do a bit of QA on articles before they are posted.
