GOG.com just launched an interesting new feature: DRM free films. Starting with a few movies like "Indie Game: The Movie", "Minecraft: The Story of Mojang", "Gamer Age" & "The Startup Kids." If you head over to GOG right now you can download two films for free "TPB AFK: The Pirate Bay Away From Keyboard" and "The Art of Playing."

Movies, coupled with Linux support and the upcoming GOG Galaxy, GOG is really becoming a first class digital game service. I hope the DRM free films movement takes off and we see more great content come to it.

This is really cool, not just for the DRM-free aspect, but because of the collection of titles that they are offering right now. I'm sure that will grow and change, but having all of those game related movies and documentaries in one place... well, I just want to watch all of them now!

The DRM free aspect is pretty important to me because few film distribution channels focus on it. With everything moving the cloud, it seems certain aspects of DRM are fairly commonplace. I'd like to make the transition from buying physical media(I can rip easily) to something digital and i'd rather it not come with a silly lock.

That said, this is a pretty cool collection and I hope it grows. Wonder if films like Primer and Upstream Color will come to the service as those are great Science Fiction films that are still independently owned.
