CinemaNow Steals Movielink's Thunder
On Monday I reported that Movielink has partnered with Sonic to allow customers to download films and burn them to DVD through DRM controls provided by Sonic to protect the content. The problem was that no content had been licensed by the studios for the process. CinemaNow has announced the same deal except that it has about 100 mostly older titles ready to go right now. Prices for downloads hover around $8.99 or so depending on the perceived value of the movie. There's a nice article in USA Today on this development.

Their DRM has already been broken. There DVDs are showing up on YouTube (see http://youtube.com/watch?v=RZ6HZtq3GXY). What a scam!
