Right now its just videos, but depending on its success it could expand to audio. I went to the website to do some preliminary research. I really think this could take off for several reasons.

It could replace the $2.2 billion loss of DVD sales and add to the $3.6 billion Blu-Ray sales (annually, for both). Right now there are over 60 members! So if a Fool wanted to invest in a company or two from that huge list, who would it be? Sony? Cisco? Just want some Foolish thoughts on who has the most to gain from UltraViolet.   [more]
