I said that, when talking about "the right to transcode", vendors refer to
the "what users want" as justification, while the same vendors omit
mentioning the right of content owners to have their content preserved.

Rigo's legal opinion is not an objection to what I said. It's an opinion
that, according to him, no-transcode is enough to protect content. That
opinion was raised in a separate context and not to address something I
had said specifically.

My point is "do you think it's right to ignore the rights of content owner"?
nobody ever answered "yes, it is" here, on momolondon or on WMLProgramming.

You are now making a connection between this and a only distantly-related
issue with how to protect once content in practice. So, you did not
correct any false assertion of mine.
