I want to add my name to the list of people who want to see a list of your 'trusted partners'. I also want to echo comments stating that just because you trust certain partners doesn't mean that I do, and that you *must* provide an option to opt out of this.

I've lurked on this blog for a while now, but this is the first time I've commented. I *hate* optical media such as CDs and DVDs. It's not so much the getting into the packaging, it's the fact that even after it's open I still need to store it somewhere, and the surfaces of the medium are easy to scratch. I don't want to have a huge stack of dvd cases taking up my precious space - I'm a photography student at uni and my accommodation is pokey enough without having to find somewhere for DVDs, and I have what is considered spacious and luxurious accommodation as far as halls go. If I buy or receive a DVD, it comes straight out of the case and into my macbook, where it gets ripped onto my firewire drive. I can get a normal DVD down to around 1.5gb losslessly using the h.264 codec that most modern dslrs also use for video, then I automatically tag it with dvd cover art, a blurb, and other metadata using a program called metaX, and then it sits in my iTunes library waiting for me whilst the DVD and case get put into storage and most likely I'll never see them again. Good riddance.
