Default Hackers Break HD DVD Copy Protection

Hackers Break HD DVD Copy Protection
In what will come as little to surprise to you guys, hackers have officially officially cracked the HD-DVD copy protection scheme, and are distributing films across Peer-to-Peer networks.

The hackers are distributing copies of the films using BitTorrent, a once-controversial file-sharing tool that is working to clean up its reputation by forging partnerships with TV and movie companies.

It also appears they are having success with the Blu-Ray format as well.
