When did Major Movie Studios begin using CP?

Does anybody know when the major hollywood movie studios began using copy protection on their DVD’s?


Welcome to CDF,
It all started way back with VHS tapes and Macrovision. Most DVD’s have had some sort of copy protection since the beginning.

Here’s a link to Wikipedia introducing Content Scramble System (CSS).

Really old disney tapes used it. We learned that trying to transfer them to DVD. :sad:
