DRM for HD-DVD and Blu-Ray cracked already!!

The "straight from Hollywood" DRM standard AACS (Advanced Access Content System) which is used both in HD-DVD and Blu-Ray was already cracked, according to a post in Engadget.

At this time, only the HD-DVD implementation of AACS cracking can be confirmed, but there are already some rumors that the Blu-Ray AACS implementation was cracked as well.

So, the search for an "uncrackable" DRM standard continues...
The question is: will these events affect in any way the acceptance of these new High Definition standards?
