"..TTR Technologies announced the commencement of a project to develop the first technology designed for copy protection of digital DVD to DVD piracy.
TTR's development effort will include in-house research based on the technology developed for TTR's MusicGuard, which protects against the illegal replication of audio content on compact discs (CDs).
Mr. Marc Tokayer, Chairman of TTR Technologies, Inc. said, 'Developing copy protection for DVDs is a natural progression for TTR. We've already successfully developed copy protection technologies for every physical content delivery medium since diskettes. Given the phenomenal growth of the DVD video player market, digital piracy of DVD content will be a key issue for producers, just as it has become a key concern for audio content producers.'
DVD-DVD piracy is expected to become an increasing concern for content producers and manufacturers. At the present time the only technology available to prevent illegal copies of DVD content are designed to prevent piracy from DVD to VHS format. Demand for content protection against DVD-DVD piracy will accelerate as DVD players and DVD production systems became increasingly available and affordable.."
