I've been following this story (and a followup)for a couple of days and some more has happened to it recently. The encription code for DVD was hacked a little while ago by some programmers in Norway. Since then a couple of stories have shown up on ZDNet and CNN (Thanks SkilSare). As well as this note from the guy who did it I spotted on /. who is of course now wrangling with them lawyers. Oh yeah, while on that subject, My list of DVD must haves: Big Lebowski, Grosse Point Blank, Austin Powers, Matrix, Seven, 5th Element, Pulp Fiction, Something About Mary. Oh yeah, and I'd love it if they came out with Braveheart already, damn.
You forgot Army of Darkness in your movie list, dammit!
