+ - DivX to be bought by Macrovision->

Submitted by 575
575 (195442) writes "The one-time controversial company DivX (and its new owner Sonic) is slated to be purchased by Macrovision; a copy protection company with such an awful consumer reputation that it changed its name to Rovi. DivX made its reputation by enabling piracy though codec that made it feasible to share large videos over the internet, and flipping the bird to the system though endeavors like Stage6. Now that it has literally sold out to "the man", what does it mean (if anything) for the media on the internet?"
