Mark Cuban: Ignore Hollywood!

Mark Cuban is the Chairman of HDNet, the first all-HD, national TV network, and says in a speech at the NAB that broadcasters should “totally ignore Hollywood in the fight over digital rights management,” calling the studios’ fears a “chicken little environment.” [ Consensus at Lawyerpoint]

Cuban is a breath of fresh air. Whether it’s his comments on NBA refs (or the resulting day at a Dairy Queen), his unabashed enthusiasm for his team, or his general approach to doing what he wants, he certainly doesn’t suffer any fools. What I admire about his is his leadership style: stay focused, follow through on commitments, and always think about what’s possible.

Looks like his commitment to HDNet is more of the same. Cool.
