Future of Blu-ray's Managed Copy Still Uncertain


Managed Copy, the highly-touted feature of the Blu-ray format, is still uncertain that it will be part of the AACS final specifications, although AACS LA has a different opinion.

AACS Licensing Administrator officials told CDRInfo that it has no plans to make any changes related to the Managed Copy function in the final set of the AACS agreement, which is expected to be released later this year.

AACS is the content distribution and digital rights management standard for Blu-ray 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.

The implementation of Managed Copy has not yet been widely accepted by the majority of the Hollywood studios, obviously believing that copying a movie could technically qualify as low-volume piracy.

Despite the complexity of the technology, the AACS LA has been pushing Hollywood Studios to support the function in the Blu-Ray releases.

Frank Simonis of the Blu-ray Disc Association also told CDRInfo that the BDA is also expecting the AACS final specifications without claryfing the exact time frame for the release, adding that any changes in the specifications should always contribute to a better high-def experience.
