    It seems that muslix64, the hacker who cracked HD-DVD, has now done the same for Blu-ray. Blu-ray and HD-DVD both use AACS (Advanced Access Content System) to prevent people copying the media, but it looks like both formats may have been defeated. By finding the keys that films use to prevent users copying the content, people can sidestep the protection and then rip the movies into another format, essentially allowing them the freedom to do what they want with the films. BD+, the second type of protection for Blu-ray, is yet to be broken.

    LOL i just said in a post about vista and DRM and I said all they do when they copy protect any thing is send out a challenge to break it ...Any copy protection that last longer than two weeks is considered incredible!

    Just goes to show, that no matter what you do, someone will break it. Its only a matter of time before BD+ will be broken.
