    And here I thought the technology was to benefit the consumer and not treat us like criminals. I should have figured as much.

    Novel idea for a DRM scheme. Watch as it gets circumvented in under 24 hours.

    Yep, for better or worse the pirates will always be a step ahead. New DRM schemes just delay the inevitable.

    I really don't see how this could work for the bootlegs that point cameras at the screen. How is the DVD player not going to play those DVDs? How is that really different from a home movie and what gives the player the authority to just shut off?

    see from what i understood if you tried to record the dvd by using a camcorder it would prevent that with some special sound and visual. i could be wrong.
