UMD was a step down in quality AND usabillity, no good video out on PSP, and just use the memcard instead of UMD. Blueray/Hd dvd will both be a step up in quality, a good step from the demos i've seen.
With that in mind I'm not suprised that UMD fails, but I can't see blueray going the same way.
Another good "copy protection" is the MMORPG subscription model. Still that only works for as long as playability is based on user interaction.. something I usally hate when all I need is 30 min of arcade gaming. It's no suprise that MS pushes xboxlive, and locks chipped boxes.
