    Clear Play already has a software player on the market and seems to be ready to introduce hardware. Yahoo news has the story.
    What do you guys think of this? I think the DGA's lawsuit doesn't have much merit. Clear Play isn't sellign altered films. They're providing consumers with the tools to alter the films during playback. The original isn't affected. This is essentially no different then blocking the screen, muting the tv, or fast forwarding through naughty parts, except that it's done automatically. This is different from what CleanFlicks is doing, which is pretty clearly illegal.

    Do a search for "Cleanflicks" you'll find amazingly long threads

    Overlay software such as ClearPlay will not be stopped, using the Nintendo vs Galoob Game Genie case as prescident. The only thing they MIGHT be able to get them on is that the technology violates the DVD Consortium's licensing agreements (there is supposed to be nothing between the decompressed video and output)
