GOG has had a reputation for awhile now for selling DRM-free games, and now they want to add DRM-free movies to the mix. To kick it off, they have two free movies available now, so users and studios can see how the DRM-free model works.
For now, they have over 20 documentaries on "gaming and geek culture" priced at $5.99 each, and they hope to bring in the big Hollywood blockbusters as well.
"Our initial idea was to start with the big guys, but the process is not easy," said Guillaume Rambourg, GOG.com VP for North America, in a press reelase. "In our first round of talks, the response was largely, ‘We love your ideas, but we do not want to be the first ones. We will gladly follow, but until somebody else does it first, we do not want to take the risk’.”
"Most studio officials agreed that DRM is pointless, but were quick to add that the lawyers would not allow them to get rid of it," he added.
They've also given their website a spiffy new redesign.
