I personnally do not think it will ever happen. Ever tought of how demand for such discs at a low price would be incredible? And still, only Ritek, Ricoh and Verbatim ever manufacture discs, with Ritek media being of incredibly poor quality. It’s just I think some sort of hack of this technology that was never supposed to ever happen. I think the ways to produce these discs are far too much complicated and expensive to ever make it commercialy viable. I would not think it’s because of pressure from Hollywood studios or such, I also don’t think these have any impact on such manufacturers, the problem’s probably much simpler. Of course I hope it will go mainstream, but maybe it will bring way too much suspision about piracy (like you said) and we get our fair share of such unfair suspicion already, imagine if DL discs make DVD backups so easy, everyone and their cousins would buy those. Does anyone knows if any other manufacturers are ever interested to develop DL discs? I don’t think Blu-Ray “focus” explains this lack of supply, I think instead media manufacturers would be all over it and make billions because of the incredible demand that would inevitably ensue.
