Obama’s Region 1 DVDs to Gordon Brown

Barack Obama’s recent gift to Gordon Brown was a stack of 25 classic American movies on Region 1 encoded DVDs.   The article in question on the Telegraph website states:

A Downing Street spokesman said he was “confident” that any gift Obama gave Brown would have been “well thought through,” but referred me to the White House for assistance on the “technical aspects”.

The author, Tim Walker, then gleefully crows:

By the way, when Obama’s unlikely gift was disclosed, a reader emailed me to ask if Clueless was among the films. Funnily enough, it was not.

One wonders if indeed the gift was well thought through and was, in fact, a sly and subtle message to Brown about DRM failsauce
