An innovative experiment that could spawn other immitators: MLB.com is testing a new premium multimedia service hawking full-length classic games for download and burn. Dubbed Digital Classics, the service costs $3.95 to download full-length digital copies of historic games.

Interestingly, there are no DRM mechanisms to place a cap on the amount of burns allowed. However, to counter piracy on peer-to-peer networks, MLB.com has added a secret ID tag to every download sold. If a customer uploads the games to one of the free, controversial file-sharing networks, Gallagher said the ID tag would pin that file to the customer and legal steps would be taken against violators.
