Warner Brothers got big news today for using Bittorrent as a distribution method.
Let’s not get too excited.
According to an article in the LA Times, “the company expects TV shows to be priced comparably to the current rate of $1 per episode on other Web sites and movies to be around the price of a new DVD.”
What’s a new DVD? $20? $30?
Well, the ”content … cannot be copied and burned onto a DVD. They must reside on a computer drive.”
The idiocy still makes my head spin.
More commentary here.
