Movies and p2p - irresistable attraction?

Music Industry News - as it happens
Source: p2pnet.net/MusicDish - October 18, 2002

Toronto, Canada's, Lions Gate Films of "Monster's Ball" fame is checking out Kazaa via Altnet for its new release, "The Rules of Attraction" which involves an exclusive and 'ultra-expensive' ladies (ahem) college, a sexual triangle featuring a drug- dealing "all-American looking guy," bisexual Paul and Paul's ex-girlfriend, says a synopsis at hollywood.com.

Who could ask for more?

Lions Gate is working with Altnet, "which is not in litigation with any studios" because their software is "encrypted with copyright protection so that it cannot be copied," says the hollywood.com story.

Lions Gate is, by a strange coincidence, majority owner of CinemaNow.com which offers 'copy protected' film downloads. Its second and third largest investors are Microsoft and Blockbuster, respectively, not to speak of hollywood.com and the much- loved doubleclick.com which, many will recall, not long ago tried to profile surfers - in other words, put names to supposedly 'anonymous' ad views. Doubleclick called it "personalization". Others called it "invasion of privacy".

In the meanwhile, MGM, Warner, Paramount, Sony and Universal are still steaming ahead with their Movielink pay site which, they say sanctimoniously on their 'trailer' site, is unavailable to, and will not accept any information from, children under 13. And just in case any pre-teenies decide to chance it,"If you are under 13, please exit the site," they add.

Sadly, the precise nature of the leading-edge software M, W, P, S & U use to make the site 'unavailable' to little kids, and/or to determine visitors' age, is a closely guarded secret (although, with IBM providing Movielink technology services, it's gotta be really interesting ;)
