+1 to all of this. See also the BBC arguing any CDM needs to have legal consequences for bypassing it, and to be able disable AirPlay. They then play the concern troll that
high-quality video content that the broadcast industry produces will be made available only to closed devices and application stores where such security can be implemented. In short, it will be lost to the World Wide Web entirely, and such systems have shown so far to be difficult to link to and reference for the rest of the web.. We do not believe this scenario would be positive the open web, or for anyone, either video producers or customers.
In other words, the BBC claims the open web needs the threat of jail for consumers who AirPlay to XBMC otherwise they'll take their content and lock it away.
