Blu-Ray Faces DRM Setbacks

By Justin Mann on
With Sony and Toshiba no longer considering going in cahoots together, Blu-Ray and HD-DVD are set to hit the market around the same time and compete for dominance as the new optical standard. Blu-Ray, however, is now facing some issues. BenQ, the company designing the disk drives, has encountered difficulty implementing the required DRM technology into the discs. DRM has been a controversial issue for years, and has caused many issues like this in the past. For the moment, production is only 'delayed'. HD-DVD development, though, is apparently right on schedule. This may give the lower-capacity HD-DVD a first to market advantage.
