Although i'm not sure what the point is any more. Doesn't Any DVD get around it all now anyway? Don't blank BD's still cost way too much anyway as well?

Hopefully they notice it does nothing to thwart piracy. Although if you read the press release it looks like a licenses renewal so this doesn't necessarily mean that their Blus will end up with BD+, but they do have the licenses to use it if they choose to by the looks of things.

You can just rip the things onto an HDD. Play them using an HDX or something.

My biggest question about this is if Fox and Paramount issuing BD+ key updates, will the player manufactures (software based and SA) be able to roll the updates together or will a update for FOX titles for a certain time period also apply to new Paramount for the same time period.

Wonderful - another movie studio driving the need for blu-ray player firmware updates in order to inflict copy prevention techniques onto their customers which do little to prevent actual piracy losses to the studios. What a waste.

Its helps against 0day piracy sometimes which apparently is a big deal to the suits. One of the updates took a week or 2 to crack.

I wonder if it has anything to do with the rumored Indiana Jones trilogy release.

I'm sure that Lucas and Spielberg would demand the best copy-protection system possible.

Or perhaps the BR release of the new Star Trek movie? Summer release in theaters. Late Q3 release for the movie ala Iron Man?
