Next-Generation DVDs Hacked Already

So much for "unhackable copy protection." Hackers have uncovered a way to hack the copy protection on the new HD-DVD and Blu-ray DVDs; Print Screen. That's right, the most rudimentary computer function is able to get around the next-generation copy protection without batting an eyelash. While it might seem crazy to just sit there and hit Print Screen to capture each frame of video, anyone with experience writing Windows batch files could automate the process quite easily. Try again, guys; something as simple as Print Screen should have been thought of already.
