Happy with your Xbox 360 Kinect? Read this Microsoft Patent and learn about content control via spying on YOU
Basically, when you buy or rent something like a movie, you’ll only be granted a “license” for a certain number of people to watch it. If Kinect detects more people in the room than you had a licence for, it can stop the movie, and even charge you extra.

So if Microsoft has its way, you won’t just be renting movies any more. You’ll have to decide how many people are watching, and no doubt pay more. And if one extra person turns up to your movie night? So help you God, you are going to pay.

And

the tech could also check on ages and cut off mature content if the system doesn't think you're old enough.


From the Patent (CONTENT DISTRIBUTION REGULATION BY VIEWING USER #20120278904 A1):

Content is distributed to consuming devices, such as televisions, set-top boxes and digital displays, with an associated licence option on the number of individual consumers or viewers allowed to consume the content. The limitation may comprise a number of user views, a number of user views over time, a number of simultaneous user views, views tied to user identities, views limited to user age or any variation or combination thereof, all tied to the number of actual content consumers allowed to view the content.

Is it time for consumers to send Microsoft a message about preserving privacy?

simple solution. unplug the kinect.

sounds fair though.

We had it too good in the 80s with VHS and what not.
It was a form of freedom, but it was also just a lack of technology.

The whole idea of a high budget movie is that it makes its money back and makes a profit. It ain't going to do that by being copied millions of times and downloaded freely over the net.

The cutting off of mature content bit, very useful!

As for the kinect in general, its a piece of gimmiky junk with high lag time and low accuracy i now keep it unplugged.

I always put something in front of the Kinect Cameras when I'm done with it.

It still could record sounds, though...

it does seem like if all of todays laws were followed down to every single point and enforced by super advanced technologies, that it would result in people feeling very enslaved and the privacy taken away from them.
This is not how humans should have to feel in a modern society!

The thing is that the laws just couldn't be enforced like that in the days before such technology. Thats when we felt we had enough freedom.

Therefore if laws are going to be so effectively enforced, this lowering peoples sense of freedom massively, then the laws need to be relaxed accordingly to balance this out.

Thats what needs to happen in the future.

Remember, a free range farm animal produces more, and it produces higher quality than any caged animal.

Give them their sense of freedom and their productivity will shoot up.

...and they wonder why people pirate shit. >.>

I have only one thing to say to Microsoft.

YOU DONE GOOFED UP!

Prepare for backlash, unleash Anon, engage Internet Hate Machine!

Best thing to do here imo is spread this info around like crazy, then await the inevitable rage and see if MS have anything they'd like to say before a million Kinects go sailing into the trash.

Wont happen. You see they release this technology gradually, little by little, peice by peice, and its usually tied up with something that they want, such as entertainment and satisfaction (hence the kinect). And that way people will grudgingly accept it.

this video expresses it. btw google has removed the original, and it no longer turns up in searches,(it figures)
