The long-planned DECE scheme to unify our digital downloads through one globally compatible "digital locker" is near completion, with the service—now known as UltraViolet—set to launch this fall. That logo is going to be everywhere.


The likes of Samsung, HP, Nokia, Panasonic, Sony, Toshiba, Intel and Best Buy are among the tech world leaders already signed up, with the simple aim of selling us all digital downloads that "just work" across all the many and varied online store services regardless of who you actually gave your money to—and if you're watching your purchased movie on your TV, PC or smartphone.

Disney and Apple are not onboard. They're happy with the status quo as it stands. [UltraViolet via BusinessWeek]
