I don't know if anyone follows these things but.... the ongoing onslaught continues... http://www.engadget.com/topics/hd/2007/ ... -all-hd-t/
Those cooky kids over at the Doom9 forums hate themselves some DRM. Not more than two months after discovering a means to extract the HD DVD and Blu-ray Disc "volume keys" to decrypt AACS DRM on individual films, we're now getting word that DRM hacker arnezami has found the "processing key" used to decrypt the DRM on all HD DVD and Blu-ray Disc films
I mentioned above I'm by no means a piracy advocate but on the other hand I disagree with many of the practices of the RIAA and MPAA . The reason I find it amusing is because of the millions if not billions of dollars
that just got flushed down the toilet directly related to making these discs as secure as possible. Including but not limited to the software engineers that had to be paid, licensing fees paid by player manufacturers to play the discs, both formats were delayed over piracy concerns, and add to that all the equipment that is just coming on the market that would have been rquired to play these discs that is pretty much obsolete.
Serves them right, they haven't learned in the past that protecting their content only hurts legitimate users. Piracy will continue no matter what they do, time to start treating their customers like customers instead of thieves.
