Copying BLU=RAY to AVCHD

You people are wonderful. I saw this article online:

"Pirates Prey on Blu-Ray DVD Format

HONG KONG -- Movie pirates are going after Blu-ray, using a
technological twist that makes their illicit copies both cheap to make
and tough for consumers to spot.
Pirates are taking advantage of the fact that many viewers can't tell
the difference between Hollywood's new high-definition, higher-priced
Blu-ray movie format and a bootleg format -- called AVCHD -- that's a
grade lower: AVCHD uses 720 horizontal lines of resolution instead of
Blu-ray's 1,080, but still offers a sharper picture than an ordinary
DVD on high-definition television sets."

Anyone tried to copy a BLU-RAY using AVCHD?

I wondered if anyone would care to comment about this. Also wondered if there is any improvement using an ordinary (Non-BLU=RAY) DVD on an HD (1080) TV using a BLU-RAY player... compared with using an ordinary (Non-BLU=RAY) DVD on an HD (1080) TV using a upconverting DVD player?

Thanks much!

That article has a couple of points wrong....
AVCHD is not a bootleg format, it is a standard commonly used by HD Video Cameras....
AVCHD can also be 1080P it is not just 720P
