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.

Ask yourself how many people are pirating newspapers or magazines? They are sold in vast quantities, but the hassle of making illegal copies far outweighs the action of buying the real thing.

And also, I personally don't pirate (or download) music or films, I just don't buy them if I don't like the price. I haven't bought a CD, MP3 file, or DVD for the last 2 years. If you make content cheap, accessible and unrestricted then people like me may change our habits and start buying music or films.

I know nobody gives a fcuk about my opinion and the film/music industry is not going to change any time soon. You know what, I can live without music or films, I'll spend my money on other things.
