iTunes Soon to Enable Video Burning Capabilities

In a recent development, a source from DVD Newsroom hinted that the film industry might be on the verge of relaxing some stringent DVD burning restrictions.

This change could pave the way for innovations such as DVD burning stations and might even permit companies like iTunes Music Store to offer video burning options to their customers.

The group responsible for overseeing and potentially revising these regulations is known as the DVD Copy Control Association.

This organization is reportedly in the process of authorizing the use of encryption technology known as Content Scrambling System (CSS) for digital distribution platforms, which is crucial for enabling the burning of videos.

While there is no confirmed timeline for when these new guidelines could be implemented, or when video burning might become available on platforms like the iTunes Music Store, the pace at which Hollywood has adapted to digital innovations in the past suggests it might not be anytime soon.
