Walmart to Rip DVDs for Consumers With TV/Film Industry Partnership Ultraviolet

Transfers to the cloud cost $2 to $4 in addition to product purchase price

Walmart is launching a DVD-ripping service for its customers, uploading their movies to UltraViolet's cloud so that they're accessible via the big-box chain's Vudu service. The service represents a partnership between Walmart; UltraViolet, which has everyone from Sony to Warner Bros. on board; and technology entrepreneurs (Vudu was its own company before Walmart acquired it).
