It's being reported that the first HDDVD rip can be downloaded as a torrent if you know where to look.  The torrent is a little over 19 GiB, and is a rip of the HD version of the movie 'Serenity'.  Apparently, the encryption key for the movie was posted in the Doom9 forums so that it could be ripped using BackupHDDVD.

So, where does this leave us?  Pirates have now proven that they can get around the encryption of HDDVD, thus ensuring that they can distribute ripped movies any time they want to.  On the other hand, those of us who are law-abiding citizens and support the notion that people ought to be paid for their work get left having to put up with the loss of personal rights that DRM represents.
