UltraViolet. Heard of it? Not surprising. It's the movie industry's big-money shot at curtailing piracy, and while loads of companies are onboard, few people have heard of it -- let alone understand it.

Today's date is Friday March 11, 2011. Do you know what that means? An end to the work week and the beginning of a weekend of partying, for some of you.
