Protecting DVD Content Owners from Consumer Piracy
Rovi's RipGuard provides a new DVD copy protection system, making it possible for content providers to make their products available to customers in a timely and cost-effective manner while significantly reducing the creation of illegal copies for piracy. Protection of DVD content with RipGuard dramatically reduces the ripping of copyrighted content. DeCSS software that breaks the CSS encryption found on DVDs is widely available. You can't depend on it to protect your valuable content. RipGuard protects against most DeCSS ripping procedures, making it impractical for all but the most determined to violate their licence agreement.
