1. "The US Patents and Trade Office awarded Amazon Patent No. 8,364,595
— which covers an electronic marketplace where digital content can be
transferred between users a limited number of times — in late January,
after the company applied for it in 2009.
The patent describes a marketplace where digital goods such as "e-books,
audio, video, computer games, etc" that are purchased from an original
vendor are stored in a personalised data store. Amazon's idea is that
users can sacrifice their right to access "the now-used digital content"
and move it to another person's data store."
2. "Time Warner CEO says cloud-based sellthrough platform expanding
beyond U.S., Canada and U.K.
UltraViolet http://www.uvvu.com/ , the industry-wide initiative to
reinvigorate sellthrough of physical and digital movies, is set to bow
international access in the coming months with availability in
Australia, France, Germany, Ireland and New Zealand, said Time Warner
CEO Jeff Bewkes.
In a Feb. 6 fiscal call with analysts, Bewkes reiterated growing support
for the cloud-based digital locker, which Warner helped launch through
Flixster.com. The website is a key registration platform for consumers
to register UltraViolet titles accessible on compatible devices anytime.
Bewkes said that with more than 9 million registered accounts and 8,500
compatible titles in North America, the time is right to expand
“In 2013, we expect to see a lot more retailers coming on board,” he said."
