This is certainly a new idea. But the number of customers who are willing to really wait and download movies into the USB drives may be really less. And don't forget the movies are always avaliable online for free even though it's not legal. But if many studio's can tie up with the Mo-DV and the movies are available very low cost we might see this as a potential technolgy to replace all the movie rental stores such as block buster.

I guess consumer would prefer to keep it online and then when he wants he can view it. Like how many movies can he carry on flash drive??? Unless he is on travel and bandwidth is a problem then probably carrying on flash drive would be useful...

The advantage of Mo-DV is the use of serial number on individual flash memory as a security mechanism. What if the flash memory is toasted? On the other hands, as the society moves to mobile computing, would consumer be rather keep the movies online or carrying them on a flash drive? What's your opinion on it?

It's hard to get fired up about more DRM junk. Will it be a cool thing? Doubtful. Now we see digital copies shipped with Blue-ray's and the digital downloads end up being very inexpensive. With Netflix and other services available on phones as part of the home service, who cares?
