value chain
 n.— «The companies that produce/own audio recordings, video, TV shows and films don’t trust the general public (a director of a large film distributor used those very words to me). Because they don’t trust you, they want to ensure that throughout the value chain (their words—meaning from production, to you watching it), the content will remain encrypted. The only time it’s not encrypted, is when it leaves the screen or speakers and hits your eyes/ears.» —“IF…TV Goes Down The Tube—The Media 2012″ by Simon Perry Digital-Lifestyles.info Mar. 21, 2005.
