And DRM is the solution corresponding to this will.
Actually it is an attempt to save face of media publishers who want to
hide that loss of revenue is mainly their own fault (e.g. waiting way to
long before establishing digital distribution channels).
Starting from there, you need to have a chain of trust starting at
time, till the execution of the player application.
Chain of trust is a work around for failing to implement a proper
cryptographic channel from content source to destination.
The very base principle of a secure channel is that only the two ends know
the secret protecting the channel, not any random third party
DRM was designed with its flaws in order to not require an actually secure
channel so it could be deployed right away without requiring the consumer
device market to catch up.
It is sad that even newly designed mobile devices rather propagate a
flawed and discriminatory scheme instead of providing real benefits to
both content provider and consumers.
But the worst thing is that people still believe and propagate the excuse
that it would be necessary.
