Not only will this technology help us figure out where movies are being pirated the most - we will also be able to track down the exact person who bought the DVD/Blueray disc that was illegally copied. This is possible because movie-resellers will be required to check ID on people buying movies, and enter this into a database with the unique watermark of the movie(s).

I don't see blatant piracy as a necessarily good thing, but this is well beyond what is needed, and well into rights infringement, in my opinion.
How is it well beyond what is needed?
What is needed (for them) is a way to stop piracy, and that way currently doesn't exist.
This seems like a fairly decent way, but it certainly isn't going to stop piracy.

Too take my wife to the movies will cost me $100.00, at least. Then they proceed with 30 minutes of commercials before the movie . . .

There's a simple reason why downloading is so popular. The product that 'pirates' offer is superiour to the original in pretty much every way. These companies are living on the stone age of technology and it's their own fault if they lose revenue.
The truth is, most pirated movies are of extremely poor quality. The only reason people download them is because they can't/won't go out and buy them.
