Is there a library for BRD DRM?

I was thinking about buying an external BRD drive for my laptop, but I'm not sure if bluray DRM is supported by anything on Linux. Anyone know?

Mainly wanting to be able to watch my BRD movies and rip them with HandBrake (now that it has the capability). I can do it with DVDs but I'm not sure if BRD will work.

I don't know of any "just works" method, but apparently it is possible with certain software, e.g. makemkv (link to their site). Note that decrypting the discs might not be legal, depending on how things are where you are, so you're probably better off not using BD at all. I'd say the same for DVDs, but apparently we're running out of options thanks to the big money folks.
