Most people don't dupe DVDs yet, so at some point they will be new to it and will need to download the software, if there is no software the new pirates will be SOL. If you want to screw the MPAA/RIAA hand out CDs with 'tools' and information, and talk to people and tell them how easy it is now. Things that are legal because they have a lobby group behind them: Guns, Cigarettes and Alcohol. Things that still need a lobby group: Piracy, Kiddy porn, Murder, Weed. The same thing is going on with DirecTV it's still easy to pirate but just try buying the hardware to do it; they have shutdown any web site that has ever sold anything to do with smart cards, and sent BILLS to people who have ever bought anything from one of the companies. It's all about scaring people into submission.
