Once upon a time Apple filed a patent on infrared system for the iPhone that might receive commands to disable video recording on the device. Then people starts panicking and protesting Apple; on their blogs.
Pardon the profanities.
Seriously, calm the fuck down! It is a fucking patent filing.
Should RIAA and MPAA wanted this technology to be built into the phones, the patent holder can just say no.
In addition to that I would be really happy to be able to watch bands like Bad Religion and Slayer live without having 100 people right in front of me raising their phone videotaping the stage.
Go ahead, jump to your conclusion and stop buying/using any Apple products right now.
