    Hi all

    This is interesting, the company that makes quite a lot of copy protection for DVD's under the title of "protecting your image" - more "protecting our interests" own website does not work. Try going to www.macrovision.com or their RipGuard (what a flop that was) website and nothing happens. Hopefully it never comes back because all their products can be bypassed.

    Apparently Macrovision signed some deals on Tuesday with the likes of Netflix and Bittorrent to license DRM to online video stores.

    Possibly someone decided to show great displeasure or maybe Macrovision just doesn't know how to run a website.

    Edit: The Macrovision website is working fine when I just checked.
