I think the main challenge in making this type of media distribution a
is not the technology, we mostly know how to make it work.

The real challenge is the content owners' willingness to make the
available while preserving their IP rights.

Yep.  Lots of startups have lots of ideas.  If you are selling 
hammers, you can use the same hammer for lots of projects.  But I'm 
not a true believer in the hammer religion.

Argh.  What I'm saying is that this is being worked on.  And 
I know from the research perspective in a previous life that 
it can be made work.  The fact that startups are working on 
commercializing wasn't supposed to suggest viability (it 
never does), but that products are on the way to market.  I 
have my confirmation of viability of the concept from a 
different background altogether and I don't subscribe to 
startup=viability for anything.
