Blu-ray copy protection 'cracked'

A company claims it has cracked the anti-piracy technology on Blu-ray discs.

Slysoft says the new version of its AnyDVD programme allows users to make "backup security copies" of high definition movies. The claim is a blow to Sony which developed the Blu-ray format.

The discs are protected by an anti-piracy system called BD+.

When it launched in 2007, developers boasted it would not be cracked for 10 years.

Sony declined to comment. SlySoft says it hacked the BD+ technology in November.

It decided to wait for the result of the "format war" between Blu-ray and HD DVD before releasing a full product. BD+ is designed to react to attempts on its technology. Its developers say they can re-lock copied discs, making them unusable in the future.

SlySoft reckons it is prepared for this. Peer van Heuen from the company said: "The worst-case scenario is our boss locks us up with only bread and water in the company dungeon for three months until we are successful again."

Slysoft has been a positive force in the world since the first versions of CloneCD.

If Slysoft sells its software (anyDVD), and it hacked the solution to Blu-Ray, then is it legal to sell the hack of another company's software? If so, then could Blu-Ray hack AnyDVD and sell the crack for IT? Hmmm... come to think about it, they wouldnt want to, cause they would be propagating the solution against their own product.

Looks like Slysoft is in the best position at this stage.

It's a cat and mouse game. A company come out with a new technology then someone crack it. Then the company go back to the drawing board.
