Justice Department Buys Big Screen T.V., Rents Karate Kid Trilogy, Bills Taxpayer

Dow Jones News reports that the Justice Department " is looking into a coalition of companies known as the Blu-ray group, people familiar with the matter say. Founded by Sony, Matsushita, Philips and seven other major electronics companies, the group is promoting the Blu-ray disc, a format that can store about six times as much data as a conventional DVD, enough for more than four hours of high-definition video. "

there are currently two leading formats of DVD technology competing to be the next big thing. As with the Beta-max/VHS debate, one system seems to be the favorite of users/afficionados and another seems to be the favorite of industry types. The Justice Department is investigating possible anti-trust violations with the apparent collusion of the Blu-ray group.

Oish, Justice Department, you too much T.V..
