Well, I know it's a headache and hard to do etc., just that their record so far is essentially zero after about six years of trying. Funny joke about the government etc. but of course it's nothing to do with the government at all.
I don't know the ins and outs of it all but it's safe to assume with zero progress after all this time that it is the content owners that are actually holding everything back. Like the music industry they will probably have to be taken to the brink of collapse before they see the value in moving forward into the future. They are still thinking of the Internet as "a service that runs on my laptop" instead of what it really is, which is the new backbone of the new distribution system. Curiously I think Apple's Airplay in OS X will be a major factor in moving them forward as the concept of keeping somethings "on your computer" and other things "on your TV" is a false distinction that is exposed by the fact that you can now stream your computer to the TV anyway.
