Target vs. Disney Over Downloadable Movies (UPDATED Nov 20, 2006)

by on November 20, 2006

According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, national retailer Target is in conflict with Disney again due to the downloadable Disney movies available on the Apple iTunes Store. Target is reportedly upset over the lower pricing of the downloadable movies compared to the DVD version, and has told stores to remove signs promoting Disney products or movies. Disney has supposedly retaliated by saying it will not deliver restocks of Cars DVDs, or new DVD shipments of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest.
