Cloud DRM - Why Pay TV Needs to Consider it?

Mon, Jul 20, 2015 | by David Leporini

Efforts to break such protection technologies have been around for almost as long, as witnessed by the landmark and unanimous passing of The Digital Millennium Copyright Act by the US Senate in 1998. This made it an offence to circumvent access controls and technical protection measures applied to copyrighted works, and thus the struggle against digital piracy became a matter for the criminal courts as well as the copyright holders.
