The 4C Entity, responsible for the DVD CSS and CPRM technologies, announced today that The Register is to be the first publisher to enter into a wide-ranging content sharing and co-operative agreement.

The Register will act as a proving ground for existing copyright protection schemes and as a test bed for future technologies.

The alliance includes reciprocal exchange of personnel. License Management International(LMI) executive John Hoy will take over The Register's Letter's Section, and write a weekly column: 'Why Copyright Protection Is Good For You'.

In exchange, Reg odd job man Lester Haines will work on merchandise and marketing projects for the 4C Entity. A range of t-shirts is already underway, due for delivery in 2007, including the slogans 'Show Us Your Keys' and 'Do You Know Who's Picking Whose Keys (We Do)'.

Future technology co-operation includes: work on the SYFP (Seize Your Fingers Protocol), planned for inclusion in copy-protected keyboards which immobilise the user when copy control mechanisms are breached. 4C explains that this is a humane technology, involving temporary loss of use of the fingertips only. ®
