ReluctantRefactorer writes with an article in the Register reporting that Blu-ray copy-protection technology has been sidestepped
by muslix64, the same hacker who bypassed the DRM technology of rival HD DVD discs
last month. From the article: "muslix64's work has effectively sparked off a [cat]-and-mouse game between hackers and the entertainment industry, where consumers are likely to face compatibility problems while footing the bill for the entertainment industry's insistence on pushing ultimately flawed DRM technology on an unwilling public."
