Magicweb, Inc. (OTC:MGWB) Under pressure from piracy and the illegal copying of content, the online media and entertainment industries are being reinvigorated by new drivers including the online distribution of films and music.

Leading the way is Magicweb, Inc., a technology company that will provide a mechanism for movie theatres to compete directly with Internet and DVD pirates.

According to Magicweb CEO, Herbert Becker, “Our Corporation has successfully created a seamless technology which allows a movie to be transmitted via IP to a patrons home TV, computer, cell phone, PDA or any wi/fi ready component. Keeping the copyright secure and making it impossible for the end user to copy or save the broadcast.”

TechWeb News reports that according to a report released Wednesday, PricewaterhouseCoopers' Global Entertainment and Media Outlook: 2005-2009 cited key drivers as broadband Internet and wireless technologies. "The entertainment and media industry continues to display an extraordinary ability to reinvent itself and create new revenue streams through innovative offerings that barely existed as recently as 2000," said Wayne Jackson, global leader of the firm's Entertainment & Media Practice, in a statement.
