There is no shortage of Blu-ray playback software for Windows, but most of it can be pretty annoying.

Looks like Fox won't be the only one using BD+ soon, now that Paramount has licensed it, along with a few other DRM tools like RipGuard and ACP from Macrovision. There's no indication when, or even if Paramount will use the technology on its titles and the press release from Macrovision focuses on...

Nothing lets you know spring is in the air like fevered cat-and-mouse DRM activity. The AACS LA (Advanced Access Content System Licensing Administrator) has seen fit to try the "proactive renewal" strategy, hoping that changing up the encryption keys will keep Blu-ray Region B users securely under t...

When SlySoft announced last week that it'd finally unlocked BD+ content, it got a lot of news coverage -- even some in the mainstream media. But what didn't get discussed was the fact that SlySoft didn't get it done by the end of 2007, as previously promised. Well Ars took the story one step closer...

A cocky press release from West Indies-based Sly Soft proclaims their AnyDVD HD software can break through Blu-ray's copy protection, dubbed BD+. With their software, those that have Blu-ray players on their computers (and large hard drives) may be able to make copies of commercially released Blu-ra...
