It's not only the MPAA that doesn't want you porting your media to other devices, Hollywood directors are also throwing a fit. In an interview with NBC, Spielberg said that his movies will never be tailored to fit the iPod Video. He says:
"That's one medium where I have to draw the line. We'll shoot for television and the movies and let there be a wide gap" between that and the small 3-inch screen. He also said that he felt that people are social animals who will choose to go out to a movie rather than watch a show on widescreen.
Thanks Steve, but we'll watch our movies however we like, wherever we like. And if you start making decent movies again, we'll watch yours as well.
