VeriSign to bow online movie service

VeriSign has inked a deal with Kontiki and AxiomTV to launch a family friendly online movie distribution service. The company will make use of Kontiki's peer-to-peer technology, but all movies will locked down with DRM. Pundits expect that the service will require a Windows PC, but the finer details have yet to be released. AxiomTV and VeriSign plan to ensure the family-friendly vibe of the service by using a content filtering system called "Mother" that will wipe clean violence, swearing and adult content from movies. VeriSign will begin testing the service on January 8 and could launch it as early as February 1.
