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.

Exactly so. There is tons of content out there that doesn't require one to pay and the stuff that does is dirt cheap compared to say cable. NetFlix, Hulu are my primary viewing experience of content. I can watch most of the shows I want without ever having to resort to piracy. Anything else I watch on iTunes if available. Itunes even lets you rent shows now for a buck. Sometimes buying it is even cheaper. My iTunes library is huge.
