Is Samsung embedding DRM into their dvd drives?

I saw a link to this small blurb, found here that claims Samsung is putting drm into the hardware of at least one of their dvd drives. He is using Debian Linux as the operating system, and I don’t know Linux well enough to interpret the error log he quotes. Is it possible for Samsung to do this?

I geuss you missed this:

Hah! Thanks for the update. My drm paranoia was almost, but not quite, high enough to believe the original post.
