For those still living in the 90's and having problems with Sony's ARccOS copy protection scheme for DVDs, Sony has updated the system and is offering replacement discs to those who request them. Some studios just won't give up on DRM, and while CSS and more recently AACS have been compromised, they continue to look for ways to "protect" their content. As in any cat-mouse-game, you have to constantly adapt to stay in the game -- so you can bet that this won't be the last time Sony updates this format. If you are one of the few watching DVDs on an incompatible player, do yourself a favor and call in to get a replacement disc, or if even if you don't have one and just want to chat about DRM for a bit.
