HD-DVD Encryption Cracked

Well not really but someone did get a hold of some of the decryption keys for a few of the movies and was able to write a command line application to decrypt the DVD. The video is here. The finder of these keys announced it on the Doom 9 forums. It seems that the user used a cracked player to obtain the keys but that won’t really help because if that is the case then the player could easily be updated when you put a new disc in it. I hope this is a real hack and is not going to be something that the movie studios can get around because I like to sometimes backup a DVD and throw it on my Laptop so that I can watch it on a trip and not have to bring along the disc.
