Copy protection software maker Macrovision Corp. said Monday it completed its acquisition of a self-protection digital content technology from Cryptography Research Inc.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The technology acquisition previously announced on Nov. 19 will include CRI's patents, security software code and related third-party customer and partner agreements.

Self-protection digital content technology is the basis of BD+, a critical component of Blue-ray's content security platform. More than 20 companies, including major motion picture studios, use BD+ for an added layer of content protection for movies and other entertainment premiums.

CRI is a research and development organization based in San Francisco.

Shares of Macrovision fell 44 cents to $24.19 in midday trading.
