Default New Sony DVD's Not Working

It seems that new sony DVDs aren't working in some DVD players: Slashdot | New Sony DVDs Not Working In Some Players

An anonymous reader writes "It seems that the most recent DVDs released by Sony ó specifically Stranger Than Fiction, Casino Royale, and The Pursuit of Happyness ó have some kind of 'feature' that makes them unplayable on many DVD players. This doesn't appear to be covered by the major media yet, but this link to a discussion over at Amazon gives a flavor of the problems people are experiencing. A blogger called Sony and was told the problem is with the new copy protection scheme, and they do not intend to fix it. Sony says it's up to the manufacturers to update their hardware."
I'm starting to hate them

ye sony are pretty much shooting themselves in the foot on a regualr basis now days.
and IMO things like this will fuel piracy, as people will hack the copy protection and share the cracked film on a P2P network like torrents because noone wants to buy a new DVD player

I recently just found this out the hard way. I've tried a few different programs and didnn't find one that worked. Especially on Casino Royale and Pirsuit of Happyness.
