    Protecting Quicktime Media

    Does anyone know how to prevent users from saving quicktime streaming files and preventing systems from saving the same files into cache or temp internet files?

    I would think that that would be close to impossible, as the movie has to be downloaded to the computer for it to play, no? But with quicktime's streaming system, I could be wrong, as I think I've seen starwars.com do this on their trailers.

    However, someone will always be able to get a program that can capture the video on the screen, and stick it into a file that way, so nothing will be foolproof.
    Love it? Hate it? Helpful? Useless?
