[Michael Slowe] "Friends say Sony is blocking the playing of any Blu-Ray burnt disc that is not licenesed by the studios, true or false?"

This is not true. There are already BluRay burner and discs out there, and some software packages to burn to BluRay. I think what they are thinking about is that you can´t replicate BluRay (in larger quantities, let´s say 100 discs) in a professional environment without an AACS license, which is mandatory for replication. Unfortunately the whole AACS process is expensive right now. The studio has to have a license, and each batch of discs needs to have its own AACS code, which is expensive also. Plus, if you do a small revision of your project you need a new AACS code, which costs again.
