Blu-ray's BD-Live Copy Hack

Nothing's safe anymore, is it? The folks over at the Doom9 forum just posted an update to their Blu-ray disc copying software. What's included now?

The software is one of the first, as far as we know, to copy the BD-Live extension. Blu-ray Disc Ripper 1.4 lets users copy from a Blu-ray to a hard drive. In addition to the 37.2kb software program and the disc, you'll need a movie-specific "key." Luckily for the hackers of the world, users on the Doom9 forum publish those keys.
