There is a massive underground campaign to spread these numbers about – as far and as wide as possible. The last time I saw this much fuss on the internet in relation to DVD’s was in fact the when dvdCSS algorithm was discovered and spread – that one was most useful as it lead to transcoding utilities that enable uses to convert there DVD’s to other formats (ie: iPod compatible clips/movies) and for players to be developed for operating systems where there is little commercial interest in developing a DVD player (Linux).

The reason that these 16 hex numbers are important for the community is that there is a potential for them to be used to create such utilities and players. For some reason the MPAA does not like this and are issuing DCMA takedown notices.

A reminder to those not liking these numbers spread about

1) They are a trade secret – the secret is out – you need to find your leak.

2) They are numbers

3) I’m in Australia – no DCMA takedown notice for you!

Looks like the number is once again just a plain old boring number again

“There has been a lot of misunderstanding. The key that has been leaked has now been revoked.” from the BBC
