Prerequisite ...

The good news:
The group that licenses DVD security software cleared the way Thursday for movies bought over the Internet to be burned onto a DVD that can play on any machine -- a move that could dramatically change the way movies are sold.
The bad news:

Consumers must still buy special DVDs equipped with the new software's digital lock, known as the ''content scrambling system,'' or CSS.

Presumably, those discs will be more expensive because of license fees that need to be paid to companies that developed the technology.
