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.

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.


No, because that will destroy the fat profits big content gets for doing... Uh, something. And that would destroy the entire industry, nobody will make any form of art anymore, and billions and billions of people will be out of a job.

nt_jerkface says so.
