Porn Producer Vivid to Allow Download and DVD Burning

Once again, the porn industry thrusts first, and boldly, into unexplored technological territory. Where Hollywood has been afraid to allow people to download movies, their younger, but more profitable brother down in the valley have been quite open to it.

Vivid Entertainment will now sell its movies online through the CinemaNow service, allowing viewers to watch the films on the computer and then burn them to DVDs that will play on any device.

The flicks aren't without their own copy protection. Burned DVDs will not use CSS, but another protection that will prevent them from being copied one more time.

By the way, don't try google image searching for Vivid if you're at work, unless you actually work at Vivid.
