Beijing E-World and On2 Technologies, Inc. recently announced that On2's VP5 and VP6 video codecs are included in China's industrial standard for the new Enhanced Versatile Disk (EVD).



edit : Just found an article about the "new SBR-enhanced codec, EAC 2.0" which should be used in EVDs

Aren't vp5 and vp6 based on mpeg4? I thought the point of this new dvd standard was to remove reliance on western patents.

I thought that vp4, vp5 and vp6 were based on vp3. The source code for VP3 was released a year or two ago and is the basis for the Ogg Theora video codec.

As for DVD encryption, the reason why the encryption that DVDs used was so lame was because the US government restricted export of strong encryption from the US. The US government has since changed this policy, additionally china never had laws like this (AFAIK) so it wouldn't have been a problem for them anyways. If they do choose to use DRM, then it will likely be several orders of magnatude more difficult to crack than the DVD encryption.
