DTLA: Networking Content in Your Digital Home

In 1999, DTLA began licensing a content protection technology that also ensures consumers' reasonable and customary right to make personal use copies and to enjoy that content digitally networked throughout the home. Digital Transmission Content Protection ("DTCP") has been widely adopted across the globe in consumer electronics products from set top boxes and digital TVs to Blu-Ray and DVD recorders; in voluntary standards groups; by a spectrum of cable, satellite, and media services; and over a variety of wireless and wired interfaces.
