Thanks to some new, more lenient legislature on copy protection, retailers around America can do more liberal things with digital content. The Walgreens convenience store and pharmacy is looking to beat rival CVS by being the first to offer DVD-burning kiosks. In one sense, it adds convenience. By burning your own movies legally, you save a buck or two. However, it also allows old movie makers to put their content on said kiosks. Since most old black-and-white films, independent films, and b-grade horror films are not nearly popular enough to deem mass-manufacturing feasible or profitable, this new method of distributing said movies would possibly curb piracy, give old movie-makers fresh profits and popularity, and get classic movies to the consumer. Walgreens hopes to have the first movie-burning kiosks operational next month.
