Actually, it might be that simple.  Remember, locks are for honest
(and/or ignorant) people.  All the DVD cartel really needs to do is
make it inconvenient enough for the average Jiro or Aiko to work

(Income) security by obscurity---it works!  (Of course, not once they
eliminate "yutori kyoiku" and all our children grow up to be above
