Zediva is ordered to shut down (for now)

On Monday, a preliminary injunction against Zediva was issued by the U.S. District Judge whom sided with the studios. This will force Zediva to shut down.

If anybody that doesn’t know, Zediva offered streaming DVD releases as “rentals” through of what they perceived as a “loophole” . This enabled Zediva to offer Video On Demand for titles sooner than competing services since they were buying the DVDs.

Zediva indends to appeal and we’ll keep our fingers crossed.
