Sony’s hostility towards the porn industry

I picked up a techdirt article that says Sony will not allow pornography movies on Blu-Ray discs:

A porn director says that he’d wanted to use Blu-ray, but couldn’t find a disc manufacturer willing to work with his company, apparently because they were afraid Sony would revoke their Blu-ray licenses because it doesn’t want the format used for porn. If the story’s true, it seems a bit short-sighted of Sony to close itself off from porn, given that industry’s historical strength in supporting new technologies, and could tip things in favor of HD DVD.

I’m glad they(SONY) are finally standing up for something good. This might help them repair the bad reputation they’ve earned as an “evil” company. Perhaps the author is right and Sony’s hostility towards the porn industry will weaken its position in the war against HD DVD but it’s the right thing to do.🙂
