British Pathe


Wired News: A Peek at History, Piracy-Free
„In a move that started as a project to save money on film storage, British Pathe has put more than 3,500 hours of its old newsreels online, creating what it says is the largest online digital news archive.“
„In contrast with many U.S. media companies, which are insisting on mandatory copy protection of digital content, British Pathe uses a much simpler method to protect its intellectual property: They’ve placed a small British Pathe logo in the bottom-right corner of each video.“
„Yet the success of Pathe’s simple strategy doesn’t surprise the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s Cory Doctorow. „They’re treating their customers like customers, not criminals. It’s not surprising that they’re thriving,“ he said.“
