Default divx quality movies from the movie companies themselves... i wonder...

sponsored links

I was rescently watching tech live and they showed a site from the motion picture association that was to allow downloads of rescent movies.(full length about 45 days out of the box office) the movies are supposed to be some type of "Real format" and will erase themselves after 24 hrs. the premise is to stop piracy on the net by allowing the movies to be downloaded and watched on the pc much like (divx). my question, how do they think that this will stop piracy? it will be only a matter of time b4 someone cracks the protection or figures a way around the time constraints? so they are gonna be offering to anyone with a t1 near divx quality movies for pennies on the dollar only for someone to crack. my question...

1- how long will it take someone to figure a workaround for thetime issue

2- how long after that b4 someon figures how to convert the "Real format" into an svcd or vcd?

1- 43.676 days.
2- Real format can already be converted to SVCD/VCD.

If they are using RV9 then it is already pretty much DivX quality: ***********

They could also be using On2's VP5 which is supposed to be (according to them) better quality than DivX.
