Managed Copy Still a Possibility for Blu-ray Disc
Home Media Magazine is reporting that managed copy may still be a reality after all.
The chairman of the Advanced Access Content System (AACS) Business Group and manager of AACS Licensing Administrator Michael Ayers disputed media reports that the final specifications of the AACS content protection system would not include Managed Copy for Blu-ray Disc.
AACS is the content distribution and digital rights management standard for Blu-ray, restricting copying of next-generation optical discs, and Managed Copy would allow Blu-ray users limited abilities to back up their media to a hard drive, and use Blu-ray Disc content on portable media devices.
“AACS LA continues to work toward a set of final specs and licenses that includes Managed Copy, just as it has been since the beginning,” said Ayers, “There are no plans to drop Managed Copy, and reports to the contrary are in error.”
Marketing director of the Blu-ray Disc Association Andy Parsons said that while Managed Copy is an “understandably complex effort,” he did not believe AACS or the studios would give up on it.
