In order for DVD CCA to process a CSS License application, DVD CCA requires receipt of two (2) completed and signed CSS License Agreements. DVD CCA can only process original license agreements, not fax or electronic copies of agreements.

IMPORTANT: If the desired license category involves CSS proprietary materials (CSS Confidential and/or Highly Confidential Information), then Question 3.2 of the Inquiry Sheet is relevant and you will need to state the DVD Format Book Serial number(s) on Question 3.2 of the Inquiry Sheet. DVD CCA can not process signed CSS License Agreements until DVD CCA receives confirmation from the DVD FLLC that verifies your company as the owner of the applicable DVD Format Book Serial number. (Question 3.2 is not applicable to the following license categories: "Assembler", "Reseller", "Content Provider", and "Integrated Products Manufacturer").
