Studios, Manufacturers Propose Ban on DVD Copying
A panel of the DVD Copy Control Association (DVD CCA) is weighing a proposed amendment that would ban all copying of DVDs, the Web site ExtremeTech reported Friday.
Proposed by representatives of two movie studios (Disney and Warner Brothers), as well as HP, Intel, Pioneer, and Toshiba, the amendment would ban any ripping of DVDs, or any playback of DVDs without the disc in the drive.
The matter is before the DVD CCA’s Content Protection Advisory Council. The vote was scheduled for last Wednesday, but postponed, Content Agenda reported.
