BBC Media goes Microsoft
I was browsing BBC News today and I found a couple things that pissed me off.
Their antiquated copyright notice. I thought BBC backstage changed all that, allowing people to manipulate and syndicate BBC content. I mean how does Google get away with “only download the content for your own personal non-commercial use”??
Then I noticed this blog entry about exciting new M$ technologies. From there a link to a very disheartening article about BBC partnering with M$.
What happened about BBC‘s vlc or codec rumours? :(
Vista’s goal of getting content out of the browser is a clear threat to the Web browser based desktop that we’ve fought so hard for.
I wish BBC had their content on Google video, the service which now works in Korea.
With video software patents in the mix, this is bad news. Make a complaint.
