HP has licensed digital content protection technology from Intel. The printer giant is also working with Philips to make copy protection technology.

HP CEO Carly Fiorina signalled the move in January when she used her speech at the Consumer Electronics Show to attack file sharers.

Intel's technology protects video streams as they travel between devices such as a computer and a display screen, Reuters reports.

HP is working with Philips on protecting digital video content in compliance with Federal Communications Commission (FCC) rules. A code is added to content which controls how or if it can be re-broadcast or copied. The companies have submitted the technology to the FCC and hope it will be approved for DVD-R and DVD-RW formats, among others. ®
