If the browsers, sites, and image tools adopt a common license DRM standard suddenly all the normal software updates happen and POOF! the problem goes away almost overnight.
You might want to put down the bong..aint no way that the browser makers and the software makers are ever going to do that..and what about the next person who cooks up a little thing in C in their evenings that gets around it and lets it out into the wild..like the DECSS that means anyone can rip dvds and bluerays..and there are even comapnies ( in the USA) who sell software to do just that ..get around DRM..and they use paypal and mastercard and visa..
the FBI leaves them well alone ..
J see it as a doable thing that's way better than my post on how to block Pinterest as it's just the tip of a very big copyright iceberg.
Plus a DRM solution in the browsers could also be implemented in such a way to permanently prevent hotlinking of images not licensed for the site linking the image.
I see a big picture solution here to a bunch of image abuse problems that can all be stopped with some very simple technology.
I'll wait for the flying unicorns to deliver me the notice engraved with fairies tears, that says that all the browser makers and software makers signed up to this ..
