    Ice Age 2: Meltdown makes history as the first Blu-ray Disc to wind up in the popular BitTorrent file-sharing community.

    It's been reported that Ice Age 2: Meltdown has become the first Blu-ray movie disc to be leaked onto BitTorrent.

    This comes on the heels of recent news noting how a user by the alias "Janvitos" had successfully beaten the AACS encryption methods on a "Lords of War" Blu-ray movie disc.

    It really was just a matter of time before it made its way onto BitTorrent, just as its HD-DVD cousin did weeks prior.

    It was muslix64 who successfully cracked HD-DVDs AACS encryption protections, and BitTorrent users worldwide quickly saw HD-DVD movie discs appear on The Pirate Bay and other BitTorrent tracker sites the world over.

    HD-DVD movie discs leaked onto BitTorrent thus far include: Pitch Black, The Chronicle of Riddick, Batman Begins, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.

    Oddly enough, The Pirate Bay lists a copy of the movie "Hostel" as being available for download in the Blu-ray movie disc format but, being that the entry's dated November 20th, 2006, long before Janvitos made public his methods for cracking its encryption protections, the likelihood of its authenticity is suspect at best.

    This leaking of Ice Age 2: Meltdown still raises important questions about the real impact it will have on manufacturers and movie studios who release movies in this new High-Def format.

    Weighing in at around 20+ GB in size, not only will downloading them take at least a day but, trying to seed them, even with an above average 72kB/s broadband connection speed, will take weeks if not months.

    I think it will be quite sometime before my ISP upgrades it network enough to allow for connection speeds that will ever even near making transferring files of this size a possibility.

    I think the movie studios know this and is the real reason why they haven't come out publicly with dire warnings for the future of this new High-Def disc format.

    I've downloaded a couple of 20gig torrents before. Real bitch to seed back though, when your up speed is 256k.

    TotalWar, didn't you recently get set up with that 20-24Mbit connection DSL in the UK? Why on earth would it take 5-7 hours on a 24Mbit connection with usenet, when I get nearly 4GB an hour on an 8Mbit!?
