If copyright holders only like mac and windows then i can easily quit watching drm videos which seem to be barely supported even by microsoft and as apple who also hate flash so i am not shelling out £80 for a licence that will be wga invalid (my blog) , so i suppose android users cant use flash with drm.

It will be interesting to see when wipo and the copyright mafia start breaking ‘smart’ tv’s (my blog), after all its going to happen and i doubt the makers of said items will support you and wipo will laugh at you.

If i was a television person* i would be worrying about the loss of page views from other clients like us after all the world is more than apple and microsoft even if you have never heard of mobile phones but i am glad its not my problem.
