Another Gridlock Fix–And Blu-Ray Prices Drop
February 27, 2009
Thanks to Michael Morris for spotting this great example of a gridlock solution in a post at Gizmodo:
Panasonic, Sony and Philips are spinning off Blu-ray licensing into a single company, which for us, the real people, means we should be seeing Blu-ray prices take another tumble downward. That’s because the costs of licenses for people to make Blu-ray stuff will drop as much as 40 percent, since manufacturers won’t have to talk to all three companies to get the rights.
