Studios OK Copying Movie Downloads to Disc


Although the studios and music labels have done very little in the past to demonstrate that they are pro-consumer regarding digital media, the movie industry has announced that they plan to relax controls over how films are copied to DVDs.  Perhaps they are starting to get message that the customer is in control.Entertainment

According to CowboyNeal over on SlashDot, “The DVD Copy Control Association has released a statement (pdf) announcing that it will make adaptations to the Content Scramble System (CSS) used to protect DVDs. The association, made up of Hollywood studios, consumer electronics and software companies, licenses CSS to the DVD industry to protect content. The changes will allow home users to legally burn purchased movie downloads to special CSS protected DVDs, compatible with existing DVD players.”
