I think they're talking about the means the publishers use to prevent European an U.S. discs being played on machines from the other area. It's some kind of international copywrite protection scheme. The 'lock`s are on a chip resident in the player. The hackers are already altering players.

I was named for my dad- his name was Karl, but the US Army changed it to Carl when he enlisted for WWII.
"The original Carl" refers to the fact that there a lot of Carls on this newsgroup. I do believe I'm the first (but wouldn't be surprised if I wasn't).
Carl is pronounced differently than Karl. The former is always friendly, full of good cheer, and projects a warm and fuzzy image. The latter projects an image of a cold-hearted, steely-eyed apple grower.

I wonder how many folks had their personal info changed by Uncle Sam's Army. Grandma said my dad was born on 12/17. The Army decided it was 12/18, it still says 12/18 on all his stuff, you can't argue with the Army.
