AACS DRM (HD-DVD and Blu-Ray copy protection) cracked!

Wow this is exciting news for those movies fans. There's a guy at the Doom9 who cracked the copy protection for the new next generation of movies, namely HD-DVD and Blu-Ray. He gets a key from some of the new players and decrypts the movies to a hard drive. Engadget tested it out and they were able to get the movies on their HD but they weren't able to play them due to the crappiness of PowerDVD/WinDVD. I wonder if it'll be as easy to play as DVD's were, so we'll have to see.

In the mean time you can check out the Engadget post HERE and find out what's the fuss all about.
