In the latest effort to marry the computer and the PC, Samsung plans to unveil several new home entertainment systems that will transfer DVDs and Blu-ray Discs to hard drives or other digital media. In a news release the company said that in order to use the conversion software, users will have to register ownership of their movies. How they are expected to do that is not clear. Samsung added that after the registration process is complete, the users will be able to access the digital copy from multiple devices in the home and mobile devices outside the home. Copyright owners have traditionally fought all schemes by software companies to get around Digital Rights Management (DRM) protection that prevents copying copyrighted material, arguing that such software would allow users to rent a movie for as little as a dollar and then make one or more hard copies of it.
