[QUOTE=DrageMester;2662811]The problem with this approach is, that embedded Cinavia is a ticking time-bomb that will explode if your media player (or TV or Receiver or whatever else the signal goes through) gets “updated” to include Cinavia protection later on.
So the only REAL cure is to not buy any media with Cinavia infection.[/QUOTE]
Very unlikely scenario. the only reason we have Cinavia detection on BD players is because Sony forced it into the BDA’s licensing requirements. They have no such political muscle in the other areas of the industry. Further, Cinavia protection codes (the audio watermark) are specifically keyed to the type of media the content is released on, ie: BD discs, and should only trigger the protection in BD players.
The studios are actively avoiding the paying of Cinavia licensing fees on new BD releases, only Sony is using it right now. It’s very much a cost-vs-benefit situation and studios won’t jump on this bandwagon unless it can be demonstrated it will SAVE them money.
It does appear that Cinavia might stop the hoards of “rip and burn” pirates in China and elsewhere, but only time will tell if they find a way around it. It’s possible, in theory, to burn an AACS encrypted BD disc that will not trigger the protection. If that happens, then the motivation for studios to pay for Cinavia is significantly reduced.
In any case, full scale adoption of Cinavia protection even in BD movies is years away. The vast majority of consumers are still using players which ignore it.
It’s just as likely that Cinavia will see a slow lingering death just as most of Sony’s bright ideas do.
