New Scientist reports on why Hollywood’s fixation on digital copyright violation is doomed to fail:

What the movie studios fail to realise is that the pirates can earn far more money making analogue copies on a home DVD recorder than by making perfect digital clones with a PC. This is because most digitally cloned movies take up two blank discs, whereas with analogue you can cram up to three full features and many music videos onto a single blank DVD. And Hollywood’s digitally fixated copy-protection doesn’t stop you doing it.
