Blu-Ray copy protection crackedboot1973 (809692) writes "The BBC are reporting on that a company called Slysoft have cracked the BD+ copy protection system. According to the article: When it (BD+) was launched in 2007, developers boasted it would not be cracked for 10 years. SlySoft says it hacked the BD+ technology in November.
It decided to wait for the result of the "format war" between Blu-ray and HD DVD before releasing a full product. BD+ is designed to react to attempts on its technology. Its developers say they can re-lock copied discs, making them unusable in the future.
SlySoft reckons it is prepared for this. Peer van Heuen from the company said: "The worst-case scenario is our boss locks us up with only bread and water in the company dungeon for three months until we are successful again."
Sony have declined to comment."
