Studios sign off on movie downloads

The new way of renting and buying DVD’s is almost here. You will be able to get everything online and just burn it in your own DVD-R drive. With this method the movies will come probably faster to our screen than the regular DVD’s that come later in the country’s of Europe and Asia.
Hollywood studios have approved a new technology and licensing arrangement that should remove a major obstacle consumers now face with burning movies they buy digitally over the Internet onto a DVD that will play everywhere,” The Associated Press reports.

Sonic Solutions Inc. is introducing on Thursday the Qflix system for adding a standard digital lock to DVDs burned in a computer or a retail kiosk.

The lock, known as ‘content scrambling system,’ or CSS, is backed by the studios, TV networks and other content creators and comes standard on prerecorded DVDs today. All DVD players come equipped with a key that fits the lock and allows for playback.

With Qflix — and its studio-backed copy-protection system — consumers should have more options. But they’ll need new blank DVDs and compatible DVD burners to use it,” AP reports. “Consumers still would be subject to restrictions placed by the movie service and studios. For instance, using the copy-protection technology in Microsoft Corp.’s Windows Media system, a service could specify that a given title can be burned no more than two times.

    Hm, “The system can also be used in retail kiosks, which could hold hundreds of thousands of older films and TV shows for which studios don’t see a huge market. Customers could pick a film, TV episode or an entire season’s worth of shows and have them transferred to DVD on the spot.”

    …that could be kinda huge! Nice.

    Movies don’t show up later because they can’t make the discs. It’s bizzaro licensing restrictions. What makes anyone think the kiosks wont be similarly stupid.

    And you can’t “just burn it”, unless you’re using an approved OS, with the approved client, connected to approved server, with the approved disc, and you don’t violate any DRM restrictions…

    “…Sonic DVD On Demand provides a DRM gateway for secure export of content from approved download systems… also includes an Extensible Media Protection Architecture (XMPA) that allows a wide variety of studio-approved copy protection mechanisms to be applied to DVDs as they are being burned.”

    More choices will be nice, but this isn’t anything than a Netflix killer for XBox users. It will be funny when they are eventually hacked and the studios demand the service shut down.
