Klaus Zimmermann's Corner

If you can't download it, you don't own it.

A recently published article by The Atlantic seems to be bringing back into the light some age-old concerns about keeping all your media inside DRM-laden proprietary applications.

The author seems concerned about the possibility of losing access to a personal collection of music due to changes imposed by the service provider, but the reality is that this isn't anything new. It's actually exactly how streaming services were designed to be.

In this episode I talk more about how a simple test (can you download it?) will tell whether you really own something or not in a digital sense, while playing some good ol' OpenArena.
