    do anti theft measures prevent theft? hell no they just keep Johnny Dumbass from doing what nerdy over here can do... so put some encryption to make it somewhat of a chore to pirate and leave it at that

    I'm surprised SlySoft haven't been sued in to bankruptcy yet, anybody know why? Probably some American legal loopholes?

    yeah, the "fair use" clause in the american copyright law, plus the fact they operate out of Barbados i believe.

    Slysoft are located in Antigua where local law is not being broken. I believe that any effort to get Antigua to update their IP legislation to accord with WTO obligations is bogged down because the USA are in breach of WTO rulings concerning their own legslation on on-line gaming.

    They are based in Antigua (quite close to Barbados) so they can avoid copyright laws like the american DMCA.
    And i love how one of the BD+ developers last year said:
    Have DRM ever done something good for the companies?

    but if it's illegal here in the US to do what they're doing, wouldn't the US/Movie Studios not allow the consumer the ability to purchase/import copies?

    anydvd i have used in the past to unplayable dvd's in the past to some new protection, with BD (HD-dvd does not have this problem) you needed anydvd so you could play the disk as it removes any checks that the disk norm does more so if your ver of powerdvd was banned/blocked due to the keys been revoked, as power dvd would just see the disk as an unprotected disk so would skip norm checks

    I guess it keeps the DRM people in work, and it keeps the crackers off the streets :)

    "Locks are made to keep honest people honest"

    Let's face it, without DRM there would be a lot more pirates. If it was easier more people would do it.

    Look at it this way: If a person around you forgets something and walks away, taking it feels a lot less like steeling than breaking into their house would.

    Edit: Still, I'm glad that there will be an option to backup any such stuff I might buy (though for now I'm still using an SD TV)
