when that happens, the proprietary formats should die with the company 
that created them.

anyways, we're dealing with a very specific situation here, the DVD 
Forum, which was created by the electronics companies that make the 
players, and the media companies that sell the DVDs, has refused to 
allow an open source player even after DeCSS proved out futile the media 
copy protection is.  If you buy a movie on DVD, you can't even make an 
m4v copy to watch on your iphone

many linux users are quite adamant about only running open source code 
on their systems.
