On episode 1130, the gang discussed justin.tv adding a pay-per-view model on livestreams and receive a negative response. I used to follow justin.tv ’s Twitter stream and they were constantly promoting live artists that were streaming concerts. Examples include: John Mayer, Lady Gaga, Snoop Dogg, and many more. I remove the list after constantly getting ping to see Cincinnati receiver Chad Johnson’s livestream. I can see this as a great way for artists to receive compensation to show live concerts online but the real question is will people pay for this? We shall see.

Public key cryptography is a good idea but I have a feeling that the movie studios don’t trust the theaters and thus wouldn’t want them to be able to play the movie until it is supposed to be released. With regular encryption the movie studios can send along the movie before it is released and don’t have to worry about the theaters being able to play the movie until the key is sent to them at the time the movie is released.
