4Kbluray/UHD has always been region-free from the start. The issue with 4Kbluray, is finding (or modifying) a "friendly" drive which unofficial ripping programs (such as makemkv) can deal with.

Generic bluray's region restrictions is done at the software level. Unofficial bluray ripping/viewing programs will just bypass it by default.

DVD's region restrictions can be overcome by just about any dvd ripping/viewing program. The dvd CSS encryption scheme is so weak and thoroughly cracked, that region restriction is just a "speed bump".
