Soon they will own everything for copy protection


Macrovision will add to its copy protection portfolio with the purchase of Cryptography Research. Cryptography Research is the company that developed the SPDC protection scheme for Blu-ray discs.

The deal is valued at $45 million in cash plus warrants for stock. Macrovision will own the patents for the technology, including BD+ which is a virtual machine technology that lives inside of Blu-ray hardware for the purpose of digital rights management.

With this purchase, Macrovision is by far the largest company in the software protection business. Macrovision technologies protect more software content than any other player in this field.
