Another domino falls on HD DVD, BD+ is completed!!

Postby dolphinius_rex on Wed Jun 20, 2007 3:01 am

Continuing with the rapid release of good news for the Blu-Ray camp, it seems that the BD+ copy protection system is now finally completed:

Although many people will find this annoying if they want to back up or pirate Blu-Ray movies, it also means that paranoid studios like Fox will be more secure in releasing movies on the format.

It will deffinately be interesting to see how this one plays out.

I doubt BD+ will be able to stop the online community.
This will be a new challenge for all the folks over at Doom9.

It will be interesting to sit back and watch all of the developments unfold...

Unlike previous protections on DVD, HD DVD, and Blu-Ray, they haven't provided convenient roadmap of what the protection is and how it works. So people will be starting blind.

I don't doubt that this copy protection will be beaten eventually, but if it's truly dynamic, then it might need to be broken again and again.

Last I heard, managed copy was supported, and I believe that falls under fair use. Sorry if I don't freak out when companies try to protect their intellectual property.
