Due to a reporting error, the seventh paragraph of the story "Alcatel-Lucent: Industry initiative will combat piracy," that was posted to the newswire Monday, misspelled the last name of Apple spokesman Alan Hely. The paragraph has been corrected and now reads:
All the lofty goals aside, there are still stumbling blocks. The companies behind the system include Alcatel-Lucent, Best Buy, Cisco Systems, Comcast, Fox Entertainment Group, Hewlett-Packard, Intel, Lionsgate, Microsoft, NBC Universal, Paramount Pictures, Philips, Sony, which West credits for getting the initiative off the ground, Toshiba, VeriSign and Warner Bros. Entertainment. An impressive list, but Apple, which dominates the digital download market today, and Disney, are still missing. Apple doesn't want to comment, according to spokesman Alan Hely. But the door is open.
