At a recent private meeting with Hollywood executives, Apple and Pixar CEO Steve Jobs argued that studios should not license their movies for use in the upcoming high-definition DVD format until Hollywood is assured by the tech industry that the discs can not be copied by future DVD burners. The Wall Street Journal reports [paid sub. required]: “Jobs even suggested that high-definition DVD burners not be bundled with computers at all — a scenario he said in an interview was ‘extreme’ and one that ‘I hope we don’t have to get to, but it helps to put the issue in perspective.’ He said it is up to the tech industry to prove to Hollywood that high-definition content can be adequately protected. In making his argument, Jobs signaled that he is for now siding with Hollywood, rather than Silicon Valley, when it comes to protecting movie content from pirates.”
