DVD Audio Disks Delayed Due to CSS Hack

According to CNN, DVD audio disks will be delayed till mid-2000 due to the recent hack of the CSS decryption scheme. "DVD Audio was to use CSS2, a newer version of the content scrambling system (CSS) employed on DVD Video. Those plans are now in disarray after the CSS system was hacked a month ago, the company [Matsushita Electric Industrial Co.] said Wednesday." This is sad that it has come to this. In the long run though, this will end up hurting the companies involved due to lost revenue.
