AACS took years to develop, and it has been broken in weeks. The developers spent billions, the hackers spent pennies.

Really, after the deCSS stuff, this comes as no surprise indeed.

This, however, does not detract from its awesomeness on principle.

edit: I just felt a need to marvel a moment about deCSS. The industry was so happy about the CSS coding that protects DVDs from access, until someone created a crack that was some 15 lines long.
