Self-destructing DVD movies

Written by Petteri Pyyny (Google+) @ 20 Jan 2000 9:41

SpectraDisc announced a DVD disc format that works on all existing DVD players, but that becomes useless after certain period of time. Product is aimed in rental markets, where people could rent a movie and don't have to worry about returning it -- basically same audience that "god-thanks-its-finally-dead" -format DivX that needed own special DVD player and a phone-line hook-up to operate.
After first use the disc begins to change into blue and is useless after 2-3 days.
