RealNetworks replays Film.com

Film.com, the new entertainment news portal/blog/Rhapsody promotional vehicle that RealNetworks announced today, has a connection to The Seattle Times.

Film.com was originally started as a film commentary site by Lucy Mohl in 1994, back when Seattle was at the cutting edge of online video services.

Lucy later worked at Real, and is now part of the team here that produces seattletimes.com (which has its own entertainment site with local listings and reviews, by the way).

Real acquired Lucy’s services and the domain as a package deal, so she didn’t get a piece of the Microsoft antitrust coin that Real’s been spending lately.
