That doesn't mean there isn't an argument for a fair use duplicate... If AACS does not have managed copy, it is in violation of the fair use act and should be fought on those grounds.
That's what makes BD+ infinitely better than AACS: As long as it supports managed copy (and it allegedly does) and by watermarking allows police to track down illegal copies, there is no legal reason to break it so any attempt to break it could and should be construed as criminal activity. I understand that knowledge seekers could and should try to understand it and by "hacking" can discover vulnerabilities that need to be fixed. Thus "white hat" hacking is still possible, but there is no such thing as "white hat" cracking of legal DRM.

We all know that bd+ will be cracked, it's just a matter of time.
Cracking a code is not the problem...it's the people who buy or acquire the copied material that are the problem. These are the people that Disney, FOX and the other studios are most worried about.
I really don't know how bad this piracy problem is. Maybe I'm naive. I know several people who do it for music and SD DVDs. I have no interest in that, I would rather buy it and support the "artist". But that's me.If you are wearing a helmet, please, move along.
