about Sony not being against porn on Blu Ray are bullsh1t. It clearly states here that Sony will not allow their mass duplication service to be used for such content. Although they may not be outright banning other duplication services from reproducing porn discs, I am sure they are making their desire to keep porn off the medium known to those companies who bought duplication technology from them. No company making a living off of Sony technology is going to risk throwing their livelihood and considerable investment in technology out the window by partnering with content providers that Sony disapproves of.

"Sony dismissed the claims saying it has no control over the licensing of Blu-ray, and has no problem with the adult industry using the format. "There's no prohibition against adult content," Lisa Gephardt, a spokeswoman for Sony Corp. of America, said. "We don't tell people how they can use the licenses they get from the Blu-ray Disc Association."

Indeed, the BDA, which handles all licensing for Blu-ray technology, said in a statement that the group is "an open organization that welcomes the participation of all companies interested in using and supporting the format, including those that represent the full spectrum of genres in the content industry."

Sony's troubles with the adult industry apparently stems from its longstanding policy not to manufacture DVDs or videocassettes with adult content. Sony is one of several companies in the United States that replicates media for entertainment companies. "Sony disc manufacturing will not manufacture adult titles," Gephardt said. "We have never done it, and we have no plans to." The policy, however, is Sony's, AND HAS NO IMPACT ON ANY OTHER COMPANY, the spokeswoman said."

So yeah, what you posted isn't news at all. They've never done it, they won't do it with BRD. But that doesn't mean other companies won't. You think sony is the only one that owns factories to produce BRd's ? c'mooon

The adult films I've seen are generally not Hollywood state-of-the-art quality. They look like digital home movie cameras at best. Plus, if you want to be cheap, you can fit like 8 hours of low quality porn on a DVD. Why bother with 100 hours of low quality porn on a Bluray? It's more of the same cheap quaity. Porn isn't produced using high definition cameras, but I guess it'll become more popular. I dunno about you, but I can't hold off for 2+ hours while watching a full length movie, I'd take a high quality film on a reg. DVD that isn't 3 hours long.
