BBC download plans approved...

... on one hand yay! The BBC Trust have approved allowing BBC programmes to be downloaded on line...

... one the other hand boo! Only time-limited DRM files will be available. This is a change for the beeb who have been fab with their podcasting initiatives to date.

One of the Trustees was quoted as saying that the Board "could still change its mind if there was public outcry...".

There is currently a public consultation with a short questionnaire, so if you think that the beeb should not be going down the the DRM route, then fill it in!
