Will there be dual layer recordable DVD discs / recorders?

Hi guys

sorry about this newbie question but will there be dual layer recordable DVD discs / recorders?

Seems a shame that at the moment we only have 4.7 gb




As far as I know, dual-layer discs are made in separate layers and then glued together.

This is why all blank DVDs are single layer discs with a capacity of 4Gb. It wouldn't be possible for a home user to glue the layers together.

The studios would not want a recordable dual-layer format for fear of piracy. Since all movies are now dual-layer discs (9Gb) and the blanks are only single layer discs (4Gb), an identical one-to-one copy is not possible.
