CYNOPSIS DIGITAL – TODAY’S TOP STORY: Many of the major movie studios and online movie retailers are preparing to launch an new “Open Market” initiative as an effort to unify DRM standards across the digital video marketplace, reports TechCrunch. Lack of interoperability has slowed online sales of movies for years as consumers are reluctant to pay for downloads that may not work on off-brand televisions, DVRs or mobile devices. Studios including Fox, Paramount, Sony, Universal and Time Warner as well as retailers Amazon, Target, WalMart, Comcast, MovieLink and CinemaNow are reportedly in support of the effort. Such a standard would be a huge boon for Sony, for one, which like Apple makes much of its living by selling electronic devices.   Full edition: CYN DIGITAL.
