Winner - Businesses.
Loser - Consumers.

Why? DRM and increased content control will continue to limit the evolution of new technolgies. See Cablevision's remote DVR as a recent example.

Some additional information on this can be found here. This links to an article that (among other things) deals with the DCMA. The interesting aspect of the article is the contribution by one of the DCMA's original authors who admits that the efforts of the US to implement copyright protections have been abused by content holders at the expense of consumer rights.
