    Default Microsoft’s new Kinect patent goes Big Brother, will spy on you for the MPAA



    Quote
    Microsoft has filed for a Kinect-related patent, and it’s a doozy of an application. The abstract describes a camera-based system that would monitor the number of viewers in a room and check to see if the number of occupants exceeded a certain threshold set by the content provider. If there are too many warm bodies present, the device owner would be prompted to purchase a license for a greater number of viewers.
    No, really. It’s that blunt. From the abstract: “The users consuming the content on a display device are monitored so that if the number of user-views licensed is exceeded, remedial action may be taken.”

    Unplug camera, problem solved. Or you know, pirate it like everyone does when DRM goes crazy overboard.
