Yeah, yeah, we know leaked screener DVDs from Academy Awards judges could easily bring civilization to a grinding
halt, but it sure seems like those movie moguls will go through a
lot of crap just to keep a lock on
their precious cinema. Walt Disney Co. is the first to announce support of a new anti-piracy scheme that locks the
screener DVDs to playback on specific players from Dolby's Cinea unit. Cinea is shipping out 12,000 of the ultra-secure
players to all the
crazy piraters Academy members that will be screening this year's movies, so it looks like
there might not be any bit torrent joy this year — um, yeah, right.
