LG and SanDisk Work Together on Content Protection Scheme

LG and SanDisk have created a new content protection service that will allow mobile network operators to disseminate or preload content onto removable memory cards — such as microSD or M2 — in mobile phones. The content could not, however, be played in phones and/or devices that are not part of the the operator's network. In other words, if content is pushed from T-Mobile, it could be used on other T-Mobile phones, but not phones from AT&T. It works by allowing IP connectivity to the memory card in the handset. The memory card serves as a network node that is remotely manageable by the operator using industry-standard TCP/IP and OMA Smart Card Web Server. This service enables memory cards to authenticate user credentials via data on the SIM card. No network operators have said they will use or deploy this technology.

Looks like another way to make more money off of the end user. GREAT IDEA... 😢
All the more reason NOT to store anything you buy from a carrier on your personal & private memory card!

In a perfect world

the patriot act would be enforced 100% and the government would know if we were taking a pee, because cell phones with the tilt mechanism would detect a tilt and turn on the mic, then it would record the length of the pee session and would send it to the pentagon.
It would also have GPS on 24/7 so they could tell if anyone was up past curfew.. The government and AT&T has their hands in everyone's pocket and phone, and both.

wow thats sad

that is so sad they have to go through such lengths to control the things people have paid for. why should subscribers pay for downloadable content if someone is going to tell them what they can or can not do with it. we should get it for free.
