    DVD screeners still being leaked, players phased out

    "It looks like the movie industry's reliance on DRM has hit a few stumbling blocks in this year's Oscar race, with a number of DVD screeners leaked onto BitTorrent and the movie industry's oft-despised DRM-friendly DVD player now getting phased out after just a few years of service.

    The player, the S-View, was developed by Dolby subsidiary Cinea in the hope of preventing those aforementioned screeners from leaking out, but it's been met with virtually nothing but complaints since its introduction, with its large size and lack of user-friendliness the main points of contention. That apparently leaves good 'ol watermarking as the main means of protecting DVD screeners which, as mentioned earlier, certainly doesn't keep them from leaking out altogether, but at least lets studios track 'em back to the source."


    I foresee a flood of new screeners coming next year!!

    I downloaded 'No Country For Old Men' yesterday and you can see the watermark was edited out of the movie.

    All I've found is Stargate The Ark Of Truth on usenet.

    All other screeners are 2007 and earlier.
