    I think I died of laughter after reading this, tbh. It's the same as HD-DVD, just more copy protection? That's all us 'swashbucklers' bloody need.

    Is the point of this not to make it cheaper for Chinese people to buy? Given they are now not paying royalties to western/Japanese co's so the total cost should be less since the royalties will be much less.

    "... property that has advanced copy protection technology..." :confused:

    I was under the impression that China did not care about protection rights!

    More media formats with useless, excessive copy protection that will be hacked within...oh... I'd say a month.

    Bring on the disposable, 16gig+ mem cards for use in all devices much like a CD/DVD -- *that's* the future. Not plastic discs spinning on mechanical motors in order to store info. Just seems so.. "last century" now.

    The interesting side of this technology, for me at least, is this simple question: is the Chinese market large enough now to support its own technology standards independent of The West?

    While some people will wonder if CH-DVD stands a chance against HD DVD and Blu-ray, the real issue is whether it is a fair fight. With over a billion people (don't forget to exclude all the peasants who don't have running water or electricity though!) maybe CH-DVD can happily corner the local market and leave The Format Wars for everyone else :(

    "it includes Chinese-owned intellectual property that has advanced copy protection technology."

    Aka, copy this disc and we'll be sending a Deathbus around.

    Woo Woo! Here comes the death bus!

    Perhaps the disc will auto-sensor everything anti-government. I can't wait until Russia declares something similar.

    But rather than pronouncing the letters I can just imagine people pronouncing it "ched"-DVD.

    This format is China only so this will not even be on sale in the west. I dont get why people are moning as this will not effect the format war at all.

    This is silliness. China should just stick with replicating both HD-DVD and Blu-ray disks and not waste time developing its own actual ideas.

    Does anyone else just love the Presidents name, Hu Jintao? It just rolls off the tongue...
