Here's an interesting quote from a case in the states :
>"One cannot gain access to a CSS-protected work on a DVD without 
>application of the three keys that are required by the software. 
>One cannot lawfully gain access to the keys except by entering 
>into a license with the DVD CCA under authority granted by the 
>copyright owners or by purchasing a DVD player or drive containing the
>keys pursuant to such a license."

from http://news.findlaw.com/hdocs/docs/mgm/321mgm22004ord.pdf
(page 10).

In general, the CSS cases are likely to be a good place to find
the movie studies pleading in court that you can't access DVDs
without buying a license from them.
