The MPAA scumbags have hired a new weapon for their piracy fight, as Mark Milian reports for Bloomberg:
During Strahan’s tenure, Neustar developed the cloud infrastructure for UltraViolet, an initiative that won support with most of the major studios. The system lets consumers register the movies they’ve purchased to an online account providing streaming or downloading of copy-protected files to various devices.
Well, great. At least the MPAA knows she’s fully capable of shipping half-baked turds that no one wants.
I don’t know much about this, but it seems like it would be a great idea, if it were well-done. I’d definitely go for registering my purchased DVDs (few as they are) in order to, say, get them for free or very close to free on iTunes and watch them on my iPad, which doesn’t even have an optical drive.
Then again, I don’t even have enough time to watch that many movies. But one day I will, and I’ll just get Netflix. Hopefully by then, they can work out some kind of content distribution deal with the studios. I wouldn’t mind paying a few more bucks a month to make that happen.
