DVDs To Go Region Free?

If you're like me, one thing that I've always hated about the DVD format is Region Encoding (ok, so import alot of anime, so sue me, haha). If you're not familiar with Region Encoding, simply put, the worlds countries are divided into regions and given numbers, DVDs from other regions won't play in players not configured for that region, i.e. a DVD from Japan won't play in an American DVD player. The good news is that Region Encoding may be on its way out according to this report over at BBC News. Many can only hope that the industry does move towards no Region Encoding rather than moving towards Regional Code Enhancement. I personally bought a "universal" player when I shifted to the DVD format, but it'd be nice to upgrade to a new generation player and not have to worry about being unable to play a large portion of my DVD collection.
