HP asks for Blu-ray change in next-generation DVD battle

Hewlett-Packard on Wednesday raised the stakes in a battle between high-definition DVD formats by urging a group led by Sony to include features important to PC makers and users.

An expansion of the brief mention yesterday. Intel already de facto backed this request since, days after announcing support for HD-DVD, they waffled and said they’d support BD too – if only they’d add mandatory managed copy. I could see Dell and Apple, both in the BD camp, backing this request too. I tend to think that this will happen – most likely managed copy, and perhaps less likely iHD.
