Sonic’s been working in circular media like CDs and DVDs for years—they own the popular Roxio brand—but is now looking to the internet as the content delivery platform of the future. DivX, a current competitor of Sonic’s, has been helping deliver video content to internet users, legally and otherwise, for years. More
