Coming Soon: Download to Own Movies
There are still a lot of questions surrounding this. What format will they be downloadable in? Will the quality of a DVD be kept? Is the movie industry finally listening?
I think the bigger question is: how will this curb or help piracy? I'm sure there will be an Itunes like encryption on the movies where only a registered device will be able to play the movies it downloads, but like Itunes has seen, that encryption will easily be cracked . This obviously hasn't really effected Apple's business, as Itunes just recently sold its 1 billionth tune, but I can see this movies appearing on Bit Torrent sites pretty quickly.
Do you think this is a good move by the movie industry?
