Naw, they won't get banned...
But man. 1984, here we come. Then again, not like this is anything new, but it's still kind of chilling to be reminded of it.

And while, yeah, the technology isn't new, it being used like this, in people's homes is scary... I usually call people who worry their webcams might get hacked into to spy on them paranoid, but this!

I've gotten over the paranoia of having my internet being watched. They want to watch my porn, that's fine by me.

Also, really, its more likely that if anyone wanted this, it would be netflix, not Microsoft, but being asked to develop means of combating piracy is certainly within the realm of possibility with them.
Still mostly seems pretty useless really, as it is too easy to circumvent, and too many people don't own the proper units at all.
