20 Nov, 2007 By: Chris Tribbey

Macrovision announced Nov. 19 it has agreed to purchase digital content protection technology from Cryptography Research Inc., including the self-protecting digital content (SPDC) technology used for security on Blu-ray BD+ discs. The deal, reportedly worth $45 million plus an unknown amount of Macrovision stock, should be finalized by the end of the year.

Only 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment is using the BD+ technology, which aims to prevent copying of Blu-ray Disc content.
