PYN is doing a DRM-laden "trial run" with putting Ghostbusters on a USB key:

We don?t know what file format and compression settings are used on the film yet, but a spokesperson for PNY explained to Custom PC that it does come with a form of DRM that prevents you from copying the movie. ?They have DRM protection,? explained the spokesperson, ?so customers can download the movie onto their laptop or PC if they wish, but they have to have the USB drive plugged in to watch the movie, as the DRM is locked in the USB drive.?
Prediction: the DRM will get cracked by some nerd with something to prove. Anyone else who wants the movie will simply get it the old-fashioned way... or buy the DVD if they don't already have it.
