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.

Does this mean that we might somedat see video connection cables that don't cost €45+ again ? I mean, HDMI is even beating Apple in the area of overpriced copper wires, which is worth noting for something which, except for HDCP, is just, like DisplayPort, a cheap clone of DVI that's physically incompatible with it.
