DVD Jon wants to crack AACS next-gen DVD protection

Posted on Saturday, January 14 2006 @ 22:39:46 CET by

DVD Jon, the Norwegian guy that hacked the DVD disk copy protection when he was a teenager, posted a message on his blog about AACS.

AACS is the copy protection of the Blu-ray and HD DVD disks and it looks like he's planning to crack that one too! He has already registered DeAACS.com and claims the estimated release date is winter 2006/2007.
AACS, like CSS, will be a success. Not at preventing piracy. That’s not the primary objective of any DRM system. Anyone who has read the CSS license agreement knows that the primary objective is to control the market for players. Don’t you just love when your DVD player tells you “This operation is prohibited” when you try to skip the intro?
