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.

RE[2]: DRM is still effective

As with any other format, they intend Blu-ray to last just about as long once it picks up. And IMO, it hasn't even really picked up yet.

Yeah, not really. Among its other problems, I'm not too keen on buying a movie-playing device that has to constantly phone home to some faceless corporate entity in order to make sure I have permission to play the movie I just bought. And having to constantly update the firmware on the device is enough to make my parents not interested in messing with it either.

In short, I'll stick with DVDs.
