NEW YORK -

Coach is rebranding itself as Tapestry effective Oct. 31. The company says the new name will better reflect the variety of its unique brands. Coach recently bought Kate Spade and Stuart Weitzman. 

Disney is reportedly signing deals with Hollywood movie studios to get films on its "Movies Anywhere" service, which lets customers buy movies and store them digitally to watch anywhere
