Via Newsfactor: Hacker Cracks High-Def DVD Encryption System:

The movie industry may rue the day it challenged hackers to break its new encryption system for high-def DVDs, claiming it was bulletproof. The day after Christmas, a hacker known only as Muslix64 posted a hack to a Doom 9 forum that appears to shoot holes in their claim.

Certainly publishers need to be able to protect themselves, but they all have to know that no matter what they do, someone out there is going to crack it.  As such, it is best not make boasts about new systems.
