Yep, it took a group of hackers a few weeks to hack the system that was supposed to last for 10 years :]
As much as I get annoyed with people pirating films, I’m rather happy about these events. The system was silly and detrimental to people who wanted to watch films on blu-ray discs legally - it made them unable to back-up their films if they so pleased (and why shouldn’t they be unable to do that?), not to mention that it made the films unplayable on any other operating system but windows (I happen to use linux so for me that *is* a big deal).
So congratulations to the hackers! I hope their work improves the situation for normal users.
