    I'm not sure this is "terrifying" but just a bit (a very very small bit, if at all) worrisome.

    Yeah, there's FUD there but there IS something at the bottom of this.

    As I read the info - it would appear that MS wants to have a tool that will make sure that a 'residential' license for something like Netflix or MLB.TV isn't being used in a bar for public exhibition. They seemed to mention 'streaming services' a lot.

    Now, like *any* tool, this can certainly be abused.

    All it takes is an idea and the technology to implement it and there will be those who will take it to the extreme. Especially when there is $$$ to be made.

    Of course plenty of patents never see the light of day in actual use.
