"Blu-ray and HD-DVD can easily revoke a single given device by denying a drive its key. This blacklisting of a single player model is quite powerful and can slow down mass piracy, but on the other hand it can also have some significant drawbacks for legitimate consumers. For instance, you could one day suddenly be unable to watch new movies on your player because it has been revoked after someone has successfully compromised this model."

"Since the recording layer for Blu-ray data is only 0.1 mm away from the surface of the disc there is enough space below to integrate a complete 8.5 GB DVD DL disc. JVC has already managed to develop such a single-sided disc by using a red laser for the transparent Blu-ray layer."

I would have entitled that article, "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.
