Re: Video copy protection

For what it's worth, QuickTime has had a tag in the movie file ('no-save') and also the QuickTime plugin had Kioskmode, and at least some people found them useful.  They are roughly on the scale of a little white fence saying "don't enter" -- they are low enough that you can easily climb over, but they're there, and you know you have done it and the source didn't want you to.

Whether this level of notice is useful in the HTML 5 spec. context is a subject that could engage us for weeks, alas.  I (personally) don't see it as harmful.
