Redbox files lawsuit against Universal Studios Home Entertainment

Mumbai: Automated DVD rental service Redbox Automated Retail filed a suit in Delaware Federal Court against Universal Studios Home Entertainment and three of its affiliates on 10 October.

The action was filed because Redbox believes that new distribution terms proposed by USHE would prohibit the company from renting Universal Studios DVDs for 45 days after their public release, would limit how many Universal Studios DVDs each Redbox kiosk could carry, and would require them to destroy, rather than sell at a discount, previously-viewed DVDs from its kiosks.
