The HearldNet has details on a licensing deal for Microsoft’s barcode technology

“Microsoft said this week that the small square symbols, filled with red, green, yellow and black triangles, will appear on DVD and video game cases later this year, thanks to a licensing deal with the ISAN International Agency.

“… [ISAN] assigns codes to movies and other works and keeps a database about each title – director, cast members, release date, for instance. Once the group starts issuing the barcodes, studios and producers will be able to link their Web sites to that database.
