Sony DVDs Not Working In Some Players

It looks like Sony didn't learn anything from their previous DRM (Digital Rights Management) crapola with music CDs installing rootkits onto users computers without their knowledge or consent.

From Slashdot:
"It seems that the most recent DVDs released by Sony — specifically Stranger Than Fiction, Casino Royale, and The Pursuit of Happyness — have some kind of 'feature' that makes them unplayable on many DVD players.

This doesn't appear to be covered by the major media yet, but this link to a discussion over at Amazon gives a flavor of the problems people are experiencing. A blogger called Sony and was told the problem is with the new copy protection scheme, and they do not intend to fix it. Sony says it's up to the manufacturers to update their hardware."
