DVDs are encrypted to prevent unauthorized copying
with a scheme that is supposedly an industry secret.
Recently several international groups have figured
out and published the algorithm and encryption keys,
to the dismay of the industry. We will discuss the
algorithm and the current state of the law prohibiting
the circumvention of such mechanisms for protecting
intellectual property. Other topics may include DVD
technology in general, and other technological
access-control measures.
