New DS copy protection?

"...a new type of protection was found in the commercial DS game cart Jet Impulse/DS Air. We don't know exactly the differences with previous hardware yet, but this game cannot be dumped with the usual methods. "

This may mean additional difficulties for DS owners wishing to backup their legally acquired game cartridges. Pity - lord knows these dutiful dopes have it harder than anyone. Lay off, Nintendo - can't you see they're hurting?

This is an interesting development, especially b/c it seemed that Nintendo made zero effort to thwart piracy at the source when GBA was in its prime [instead, they went after Lik-sang, even before the PSP fiasco].

Considering how easy it's been for every revision of the PSP's firmware to be jacked up almost at the same time that said firmware is released, I've got faith that this new copy-protection measure will be bypassed as well.

Still, you've got to hand it to them - they should be protecting their shit.
