Next gen Dvd Encryption cracked.

More bad news for DRM: PowerDVD AACS key found, AnyDVD supports Blu-ray - Engadget

Bad news MPAA, good news fair use folk: this weekend not only marks the date of extraction for PowerDVD's AACS key (which, as you may recall, is one of the two HD disc-playing apps in Windows right now along with the already cracked WinDVD), but also signals the release of AnyDVD, which officially adds Blu-ray support. Go forth and enjoy easily ripping those heavily armored Hollywood titles, dear readers, and let no motivated power-user take the weekend off from sticking it to the man by consuming their media on the devices and whichever manner they wish.
This was inevitable. And everybody knew it was bound to happen ... so why did the studios demand such restrictive DRM when they had to have known it would be broken?
