Digital Copies of DVDs Coming To Walgreens
The country’s largest drugstore chain plans to put DVD burning kiosks in stores to make popular movies available in just 15 minutes, Reuters reported.
Walgreens will install the new system, which has a wide selection of movies, allowing customers to burn digital copies onto blank discs. The system is expected to arrive in stores next year.
The DVD Copy Control Association, which consists of movie studios and hardware manufacturers, recently decided to make it easier to develop DVD burning technology. Due to this recent change in copy-protection rules, Walgreens and other retailers are able to provide this feature while avoiding piracy laws. These retailers are working with digital media company Sonic Solutions, which recently released software due to the newly approved alteration in copy rules.
