The digital copy actually comes on a standard def DVD, not on the Bluray.  The
movie companies are expecting no one to have Bluray drive in their computers,
although Dell is offering an upgrade to a Bluray burner for $200 on their systems.

Jim, due to the strong ethics of free software lists, the only solution I have
found to have copies of movies without the DRM cannot be discussed here.  The
fact is that DRM is what the movie companies use to call something "legal" so
there's really no way around it.  You might be able to find something that can
strip tho DRM off with your Mac, but that wouldn't be legal either.  As the FSF
would have you call it, DRM is Digital Restrictions Management.  The only rights
DRM manage are the rights of the producer.  :/
