The Digital Entertainment Content Ecosystem (DECE)

Reuters has reported on this group, which will be more formally launched at the 2009 Consumer Electronics Show. The consortium includes media, technology, and retail companies that are calling for the interoperability of devices and Web sites, and usage rules that allow consumers to copy content onto household playback devices and to burn their content to physical media.

Particpating companies include:
  • Alcatel-Lucent
  • Best Buy
  • Cisco Systems Inc.
  • Comcast
  • Fox Entertainment Group
  • Hewlett-Packard
  • Intel
  • Lions Gate Entertainment
  • Microsoft
  • NBC Universal
  • Paramount Pictures
  • Philips
  • Sony
  • Toshiba
  • VeriSign
  • Warner Bros. Entertainment

Think that this is another ill-fated attempt at PlaysForSure?
