Disney on board for new anti-piracy Oscar DVDs


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.
