Content under pressure from both security and market
A root cause analysis of content would point to two basic problems in media.
a) The market is seriously distortet by the "free for data" business model. Content is not paid for but used as bait for consumers while the media providers are hit by the "free" model paid through abuse of personal data.
b) DRM have both proven unable to protect content while often implementing dis-empwoering model that comes at the expense of personal data security and lock-in to unflexible technical structure.
Both of these problems are serious, but not easily solved.
Successfull DRM are hard, if not impossible, to achieve through security controls and these meassures create bigger problems than they solve - it appears to be more an economic than a security problem as security is unlikely to provide a solution.
The economical destabilising network effects from behavoural profiling require a serious effort to restore both media and other markets to function.
The is a deep and urgent need to establish Empowering structures that enable small payments for media & digital services without feeding behavioural profiling and the negative spiral of network effects, ie. without identification (end-to-end) and without intermediaries getting access to content.
