DVD Copy Control Association, The (DVD CCA)

Overview: The DVD Copy Control Association (DVD CCA) issues licenses for the Content Scramble System (CSS) to manufacturers of Blu-ray and DVD related products. The Content Scramble System (CSS) is a protection system that enables the owners of movie content to provide consumers access to DVD movies for home viewing on their video systems and computers with reduced concern over unauthorized reproduction. CSS is a two-part system for which manufacturers of both the movie content (discs) and hardware or software (players) purchase licenses. Licensees include the owners and manufacturers of the content of DVD discs; creators of encryption engines, hardware and software decrypters; and manufacturers of DVD Players and DVD-ROM drives. As early as 2001, members of the DVD CAA included film distributors such as Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Twentieth Century Fox, and Warner Bros.
