Roxio Venue for burning protected DVDs

updated 04:40 pm EDT, Tue August 8, 2006

Roxio Venue

Unlike recent moves by other vendors, Roxio is taking steps to make DVD burning of movies both functional and legal. The software developer today announced Roxio Venue, a program made for recording downloaded movies to DVD while copy-protecting them in such a way that they can be read by regular DVD players. Venue can record using the Content Scrambling System, or CSS - the controversial encryption method used to discourage copying of most DVD movies today. Use of the software is currently limited to online movie providers who need to verify its success rate with their own content, but Roxio says that it will ship Venue to the public at large before the end of the year.
