Oscar voters could receive specially encrypted DVDs in the continuing battle against film piracy

The Academy of Motion Picture Association of America is looking into specially encrypted DVDs. Last year, a move by the Motion Picture Association of America to ban screeners collapsed amid legal action by the independent film community. Instead, the major studios sent out watermarked VHS tapes, rather than DVDs, to Academy members. If the plan wins support, members would be given a special DVD player to play the encrypted screeners.

Anti-piracy firm Cinea presented its system to Academy officials last month. Laurence Roth, marketing and business development at Cinea, said its product was a secure DVD player on which to play the encoded DVDs.
