Blu-ray BD+ Hack Software Released Last Week, Updated Version Already Available In Beta

cd-label.jpgLast year, before we had any indication that HD DVD would be dead and gone by now, a company by the name of SlySoft announced that they had broken the Blu-ray BD+ copy protection used to encrypt Blu-ray discs. They announced that the software would be available from the company by the end of 2007, and while that didn't happen, last week SlySoft announced the release of AnyDVD HD version 6.4.0.0. The company says it will now be "possible to make backup security copies of Blu-ray discs protected with BD+". I'm sure that's what we'll use it for...right!

While we're sure Blu-ray's not to happy about this, ultimately copy protection does little more than nudge people towards other digital media sources such as the popular BitTorrent client, Pirate Bay. But, while this may have some negative connotations for Blu-ray's bottom line in the short-term, ultimately it'll make Blu-ray more attractive to consumers and positively impact Hollywood as well.

Update:SlySoft has released AnyDVD HD version 6.4.0.1 in beta already with some minor fixes, updated languages, and support for some German structural protections.
