The BBC that DVDs that self-destruct within 48 hours are to be launched next month by Flexplay Technologies. The DVDs won’t do anything as exciting as exploding. Instead they slowly turn black two days after they first come into contact with air, meaning that they can no longer be read by the laser equipment within the DVD player. The attraction is that they can be sold cheaply in place of rented films. However, the BBC points out that this technology could prove a cheap source of material for pirates as they do not have any extra copy-protection compared to ordinary DVDs.
