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[4]: DRM is still effective

Too bad the pirates provide a better, more trouble-free product than the DRM-loving producers of the content themselves.

Too bad for pirates, who after all know a lot about the scale of piracy, that they are not protecting their pirated content from pirating it by other pirates.

Or, could it be that DRM-free distribution model simply brings them more revenue?
