Blu-Ray and HD-DVD copy protection cracked

Already.

Now that the system is cracked, it makes ripping Blu-Ray and HD-DVD movies as easy as it became after they cracked the copy-protection on DVD. That is to say, very easy. All this copy-protection serves as now is to make reading these discs more computationally expensive, pushing the price of your player, and its energy consumption up to unnecessary levels.

When will people learn that copy-protection is a crap idea?
