It oversees the AACS digital rights management technology that is used on high definition DVDs. \n\n\n\nThe so-called processing keys that the blog published lets users disable the DRM technology that prevents users from copying the disks or from playing it on unlicensed equipment or software. \n\n\n\nDoctorow isn't the first blogger to receive a legal order from the DRM technology group. Several other blogs have been ordered to remove references to the key and links to a forum where it was first disclosed. Google also has received legal threats from the company.\n\n\n\nThe crack first surfaced mid February a Doom 9 forum.\n\n\n\nIn an act of defiance, numerous bloggers have posted the key on their websites or linked to the website detailing the original crack. They also submitted such web pages to social news services such as Digg in an effort to spread the information to a wide audience.\n\n\n\nUltimately the AACS' campaign succeed in achieving the direct opposite of what it attempted. Instead of stopping it from spreading, it notified more people of the crack and methods explaining how to exploit it.
