HD-DVD and Blu-Ray playback on your PC? Tough!
Another reason why I think the new formats will fail. Apart from the
fact that Windows Vista will be required, which many will forgo.

It'll be like any other protection mechanism in that somewhere
it will have a weakness. DVD was supposed to be protected from
use by unlicensed players, but libdvdcss took care of that. To
play WMV9 videos on an OS other than Windows or Mac was not able
to be done a year or two back; now Linux users can read WMV9
format, convert them to other formats, and even write WMV8...
They can shut the door, but cannot forever lock it...
