So I had my first experience with digital copy today. In response to the overwhelming demand by consumers that they be allowed to copy their DVDs in some fashion to watch on laptops, iPods, and other media players, big name studios have conceded slightly and include digital copies with certain movies. I received The Dark Knight as a present today and it included such a copy. I figured I’d give it a go.
So, I pop in the bonus features disk (complete with digital copy) and a little screen pops up welcoming me to WB’s digital copy process, yada yada. After a bit of figuring out where I live and what language I speak, it opens up iTunes to validate the copy (using the handy-dandy code included in the DVD packaging). After entering the code and my iTunes password, the digital copy begins to download.
