Blu-ray Copying to Be Legal Next Year?

This is a bit surprising as Blu-ray copying is really complicated not to mention illegal. It seems that by 2010 we will be able to have some form of copy function enabled in a future Blu-ray standard. That copy feature will have its limitations but starting with Q1 2010 all discs will be allowed to be copied. And that’s only one full-resolution copy referred to as a Managed Copy. Then these copies will be writable to Blu-ray or DVD or saved onto a Windows Media DRM-compatible file. Unfortunately you’ll need to get new players to have the feature enabled so in case you want to make Managed Copies of your future Blu-ray discs then you’ll need to switch players sometime next year.
