More like: you supply the storage space, we license the content to
you for 2 viewings / 30 days whichever comes first, after which it

Physical ownership of media is a problem for rights-holders; they
can't control it once you have a hardcopy severed from the net

"I'm sorry, your copy of Star Wars is not licensed for viewing in a
room with 4 or more people present. Please report for termination!"

What's most worrying is the archival quality / locale for all this
stuff. Twenty years from now, will people be able to watch their
youtube videos? That is, after youtube goes belly-up and their site,
one sudden day, has been blanked? Will every household need to cold-
store a full computer system (monitor, cpu, os, plug-ins) from each
epoch? I.e. there's pictures and writing I did on my Commodore 64
that is now inaccessible unless I re-assemble a system, not to
mention deterioration of the floppies.

On the other hand, not sure if you yanks heard about this hilarious
Saskatchewan scandal, always check your old videocameras for
forgotten cassettes before discarding / storing them:
