Yeah, taken on it's own I could see them having issues with it, but if you have a situation where big name vendors like Red Hat were to have "blessed" (read signed) versions of a media player that works with a TPM, then only those official versions would be able to access the media without a heck of a lot of work.

Funny how if you add "Open Source" to it, much of the pro open source crowd suddenly reverses directions and say DRM is ok.
