Submission + - Managed Copies for Blu-ray Mandatory on December 4 (

eldavojohn writes: "Remember in 2007 when the rumors circulated about "managed copies" of DVDs that never really materialized? Well, the same thing is being promised for Blu-ray. In fact, it's part of the AACS licensing agreement that by December 4th the consumers should be able to have managed copies from a centralized authorization server. Finally a rare development in favor the customer, right? Problem is that no devices support it. While 600 companies have signed the licensing agreement, there's no clear way for us to take advantage of our managed copies. The AACS-LA makes this sound like a dream come true but it's becoming more and more clear that it may just be vaporware déjà vu all over again."
