Apple's video rental service coming this fall

Apple in Video Rent Talks

Apple is in the later stages of negotiating an online rental service for feature-length movies on iTunes, according to at least one senior Hollywood executive. The service, which is currently slated for a fall release, would reportedly use a version of Apple's FairPlay copy protection to let customers rent movies for a full 30 days at $2.99 per title, automatically rendering the video file inert and preventing unauthorized copies while still allowing the file's transfer to at least one extra device, such as an iPhone.
