Mickey Mouse Scared of Bluetooth

Apparently Mickey Mouse’s corporate parent, Walt Disney is shit scared of bluetooth and will not allow wireless carriers to send any ringtones, video games etc or other content using bluetooth or infrared or any direct connection technologies up until the wireless biz comes up with a solid DRM technology. (Given that they are working with Microsoft in wireline efforts, well, less said.) Mobile Playa writes “I thought it was just carriers that were afraid of Bluetooth, now we learn that content owners, too, aren’t too excited about it. I suppose it’s not all that surprising, and the article points out that content owners are still nervous about getting Napster-ized. Still, does anybody honestly believe Bluetooth will have any effect on sales of Disney ringtones or videogames?”
