Well, that didn’t take very long. Fast on the heels of beating HD-DVD for the right to be the next major format on the scene, the DRM on BlueRay has been completely cracked.
According to NewTeeVee:
“Sony won’t have much time to celebrate winning the format war against HD DVD: Notorious Antigua-based software maker Slysoft says it’s cracked Blu-Ray’s copy protection. Slysoft’s AnyDVD HD application is now offering unencrypted access to Blu-Ray content, making it possible to back up Blu-Ray discs onto your own hard drive, copy or transcode HD movies and watch them without DRM-compliant hardware, according to a company press release.”
I love that pirates have press releases.
