In Search of the Valley Movie available via Streamburst

In search of the Valley offered via non-drm Streamburst – TechCrunch

Yeah you gotta pay for it but here’s how they get you:

The first is that every film begins with a 5 second display of the name
of the person who purchased that copy, as it appears on their credit
card. The second step is that Streamburst strips out an undetectable
but unique series of bits from each copy of a file downloaded. The
company claims that this signature will survive most editing and format
transfers. That idea is that the psychological barrier of being named
will stop many people from illegally distributing the files and those
whom it doesn’t stop can be identified by the unique series of bits
stripped from whatever copies make it into illegal file sharing

I’m surprised they didn’t think of this sooner.
