AACS Interim License Agreement Ends February 27th
The AACS Interim License Agreement is set to end on February 27th, 2009. What is not clear to us is does this mean that the final agreement will be ready by then? Or will it be finished at a later date?
The thing that makes this important is the much lauded “Managed Copy” technology specifications are set to be finalized in the AACS Final Licensing Agreement. Managed Copy on Blu-ray will enable users to keep a HD quality copy of their movies on a central home server type device. This feature could be a killer app for the Windows Home Server market.
Here is the current Managed Copy section of the AACS Interim Licensing Agreement:
AACS Authorized Copying Methods
Note to Adopter: This table will, in the applicable Final Agreements, list technologies that have been
approved for Managed Copy. Technologies that may appear on this table, subject to AACS confirmation,
include: AACS, Bound Recording Method, CPRM, WMDRM, MagicGate and VCPS. AACS will consider
additional technologies for this table as they may be submitted to AACS.
