Asia-Pacific's first Centre for Content Protection (CCP) has officially launched. The CCP's key objectives are to be a clearinghouse and resource centre for information related to all aspects of digital distribution and content protection covering resource information for the Asia Pacific region. The CCP is joint enterprise of the Motion Picture Association of America and Singapore's Media Development Authority. Initially, CCP will be funded by the two founders, though ultimately they expect it to be funded and driven by its members.
The over-arching goals for the Centre are to expand consumer viewing choices by promoting technological measures that permit secure distribution of digital television; educating the public on the digital transition; and supporting technical solutions for legal downloads, home networking and remote access. The CCP will also discuss anti-piracy technological solutions where members within the organisation can network and share knowledge on content protection and expand outreach programmes within the region.
