Sony Patents Anti-Rental Tech (for Blu-Ray and PS3)The patent describes a process by which every media disc is shipped with a unique registration key. The first time the media disc is inserted into a player, that key is read and the disc is registered by the player, then the original key on the disc is rendered unreadable. Any attempt to play a registered disc in another player will fail.
everyday we see more attempts to aleniate users from Blu-Ray, I wonder how we, users, will react to this when Blu-Ray is on sale.
