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.

Quite the contrary, fighting over formats and standards like blue-ray vs HD DVD stifles competition on the more practical merits of the products. If anything, I would say that this is anti-competitive and that competition is still always good.
