dont' think this has been posted yet -- if so please delete -- from slashdot yesterday


gEvil (beta) writes "According to an article at BoingBoing, the processing keys for the AACS encryption scheme used by both HD-DVD and Blu-Ray video discs have been extracted, and a crack has been released. What this means is that there is now a method to extract the copy-protected content of any HD-DVD or Blu-Ray disc out there. This is different from Muslix64's previous crack, which only extracted the volume key for each disc. This new method bypasses this step and allows anyone to extract the data without first requiring the volume key."

The only secure DRM is one that connects to a server to validate that one person - most people would not allow their TV or DVD to be connected to the internet, so current DRM is futile (where the attacker is also the recipient of drm, which means it will always be hackable).

Well, at least with DVD-Audio they have still success with their protection, though it was cracked and tools were in internet available.
It is less time and PC/HD-stress because of too many manual steps, I think, to buy a DVD-A new or used via ebay eg. and keep that DVD-A, than trying to copy (and sell it again).
Another factor against coyping: The huge data amounts, file sizes.
I think, who wants DVD-A or HD-DVD instead of normal CD/DVD-Video, will be willing to invest (more) money for high quality content. Whereas CD and DVD-V will fulfill a very well "standard" high-quality scenario for a very long time, still.
