China selling Blu-Ray rip offs

If you're heading to China anytime soon be on the lookout for Blu-ray rip offs.

Not that this is a surprise to you or I, but Chinese pirates are attacking Blu-ray full force. The rip offs are actually DVDs but are encoded with AVCHD format on writable DVDs giving off a pleasant 720P. The titles are selling for about $7 and contain the ever so recognizable Blu-ray banner across the outer casing. The movies are being ripped from Blu-rays using easily available software, re-burned on DVD's and slapped in the official Blu-ray looking box. If you're in China be on the look out and send us a pic or two of the contraband!
