Michael Hoog from the Blu-ray Disc Association and Michelle Garra from the Blu-ray Disc Working Group discuss disc durability with CNET.com.au at the official launch of Blu-ray in Australia:

  1. What is the lifespan of a Blu-ray Disc?
  2. Can Blu-ray really survive being scrubbed with steel wool?
  3. Does having more data on Blu-ray compared to DVD increase the amount of damage a scratch causes?
  4. What effect will online delivery of content have on physical media such as Blu-ray?
