Android Market's new movie rental service blocked from rooted devices

Android Central: "We can't make this up people. According to Google, who gets to make the rules since it's their service, rooted devices are not supported by the Android Markets new movie rental service "due to requirements related to copyright protection". You'll even see a specific error message when you attempt to try -- "Failed to fetch license for [movie title] (error 49)"." (Android, Phones, Software)

That is a shame, they shoudl've kept it going for a little longer atleast for the low prices.
