Yea, “value added” for the manufacturer, like copy protection.

At some point in a company’s lifetime, they start to spend more and more effort 
in protecting their market position than they do in providing consumer value.

Sony seems to have this in spades. Remember “memory sticks?” Give away the 
razor; make a killing on blades once you have them locked in.

That’s one of the reasons I stayed with Olympus. Micro Four Thirds is an open 
standard, not a proprietary one.
