Sellout

Buried in the announcement about Google Video content being available for sale (see the last sentence in this article) is the fact that Google either created its own DRM scheme to “protect” the videos. And the fanboys are suffering from some serious cognitive dissonance issues right now. This thread at Digg is hilarious as the apologizers and excuse makers start to justify Google’s use of DRM when they comment about how easy they hope is will be to break.

The day after Anil Dash lays out the Dos and Don’ts for beating Apple at their own game, Google follows the path of least resistance. Boo to Google; no evil indeed.
