Multimedia, AV If the rumours are true, and if this Pastebin post (be sure to mirror the key if that won't get you in trouble with your authorities) is legitimate, then it looks like High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection has been cracked so hard its mother's mother felt it. HDCP is a copy protection mechanism which protects the audio and video streams sent over DisplayPort, HDMI, and DVI.

"To every action there is always an equal and opposite reaction..." Maybe a smarter thing for film industry would be to distribute digital content at the price most consumers would be willing to pay, making pirating an unwanted hassle, rather than a necessity.


Like Netflix, Hulu, Youtube Movies, Youtube Shows, Crunchyroll, and (when I'm feeling nostalgic) Jaroo?

I guess the total of $9 I pay per month for unlimited television and movies does not reprsent "a price the average consumer would be willing to pay."
