Here We Go Again — Video Standards War 2010

Andy Updegrove writes “Think of the words “standards war,” and if you’re of a certain age you’re likely to think of the battle between the Betamax and VHS video tape formats. Fast forward, and you’ll recall we just finished another video standards war between most of the same companies, this time between HD DVD and Blu-ray. Well, here we go again, except this time its the movie studios that are duking it out, and DRM issues is a big part of it. On the one side are five of the six major studios, dozens of cable, hardware, software, distribution and device vendors, and on the other side there’s just Disney — and maybe Apple as well, and that’s enough to have the other side worried.”
