Disney loses in Redbox copyright row

Posted on FEB 23, 2018 12:00 AM

Disney has lost a bid to stop movie rental company Redbox from reselling download codes for its films. Redbox bought Disney movies on DVD to offer for rental in its kiosks. The DVDs were often bundled with a code to download a copy of the film. Disney requested an injunction to stop the practice, saying that Redbox had no business arrangement with it. A California federal judge accused Disney of "copyright misuse". Redbox rents and sells movies via tens of thousands of automated kiosks that dispense DVD and Blu-ray discs. It purchases retail copies of Disney movies that include a piece of paper printed with a digital download code, which Redbox then removes to resell in its own packaging. (News By BBC NEWS)
