>BluRay has a slightly higher bitrate then HD-DVD

BluRay doesn't even have a bitrate. It does support a higher bitrate because it has a higher capacity, but bitrate depends on the movie.

BluRay does not have managed copy, was not (is not?) finalized, and the only real "feature" that it has is additional DRM support.
