    The Blu-ray Disc Association (BDA) has just endeared itself still further to Hollywood by announcing that it's come up with a new, ultra-sophisticated anti-piracy system for Blu-ray discs. In fact, the Blu-ray Disc Association is calling it 'the most comprehensive content management system ever employed on an optical disc format'.

    The new management system includes three primary components: Advanced Access Content System (AACS), "BD+", a Blu-ray specific enhancement for content protection renewability, and something called "ROM Mark", a measure that's apparently unique to Blu-ray discs and which is designed to guard against mass production piracy.
