Giancarlo Bettini, CEO of SlySoft: "One could start feeling sorry for the poor movie industry guys, but in the end, it saves their jobs and ours. Actually, they could be grateful and show a little bit more appreciation.
Beating AACS-LA's protection was a challenge that we accepted passionately, since winning feels a lot better if the opponent is almost as strong as we are. However, I wonder when people will understand that more restrictions, pressure and protections that prevent things from working won't generate more but less revenue. Microsoft's revenue in the 90ies prove us right and even Apple recently released a DRM-free iTunes version."

Valid point. The bigger challenge is getting the product accepted by the mainstream at all. If that is done the profit is there regarless of pirates.

DRM needs to make it inconvenient to pirate, not neccessarily unbreakable. Making it a big hassle is enough to dissuade most consumers.

Can AACS updates to the players be distributed on the movie disks themselves?

Once a movie is on bitorrent sites the damage is done, it only takes one person to crack the movie and upload it. BD+ just makes it more inconvenient to people that have bought the disc and can't play it through there media server.

That damage is done true, for ********** users d/ling 15-50gig files which is an issue not yet necessarily the biggest concern for mass market piracy.

That still leaves of the issues of pirate disks appearing on the streets with same convenience and lower price compared to legit disks.
