We’re starting something different today. In addition to our custom LifeStories work for clients and our free LifeStories app, we’re introducing our first premium, ready-built LifeStory.
As you may have gathered, we’re telling the LifeStory of Harry Potter.
In order to work within stringent copyright laws there are quite a lot of limitations on what we can do. Essentially, it’s a case of us building a framework app, and populating it with a user’s personal Harry Potter audio and video content. To make sure that it is the customer’s content, we supply the physical disks as well.
To make doubly sure that there is no scope for piracy, or distribution, we also supply the iPad and tie the app to the specific device.
Even with all of those measures, it would still be illegal to do this in most countries. As a result we’re only selling the collection in the UK.
The advantage of supplying the iPad means that we can be sure that there’s plenty of space for the content that we want to include. In the case of the Harry Potter Collection, there is over 50GB of video. That’s not really a practical size for an app that you’d download anyway.
