Latest HD DVD copy protection cracked, Transformers now on the loose

This has nothing to do with DeCSS, but it takes me back

I for one love the rat race between copy protection creators and copy protection breakers. Newly released Blu-ray and HD DVD discs have been shipping with the fourth-gen MKB copy protection. Slysoft’s AnyDVD software already works around this new copy protection scheme. As the world turns…

Various message boarders were freaking out that the newly released Transformers HD DVD couldn’t be ripped because of the new copy protection. And then it was ripped and ripped again by release group after release group. At this point, you can hardly visit CNN without bumping into a torrent for the rip.

Calling copy protection schemes “unbreakable” is as silly as calling the Titanic “unsinkable.”
