Further to a request filed by the VideoLan association (developer of the VLC Media Player software) before the High Authority for the Diffusion of Protected Works and for the Protection of Rights on the Internet (HADOPI) to address the question of interoperability between VLC and Blu-Ray discs, HADOPI issued its opinion on 8 April 2013. In this decision, HADOPI ruled that VideoLAN could not benefit from the reverse engineering exception, nor the decompilation exception, to obtain the secrets of the AACS and BD+ technical protection measures implemented on Blu-Ray Discs.
