Understanding HDCP

Understanding HDCP

This is a must read article. It ties all the other hardware/OS/software level DRMs that we have talked about together in one neat, three page article. Each page is important and well worth reading.

If you want to know what you will be missing (fair use and ownership) on your new computer, new OS, new versions of software, look no further … it’s all spelled out in angering detail.

We have been talking about this for nearly 4 years now and they’ve finally got most of the pieces in place … just wait for Vista, Blu-Ray, HD DVD and a multitude of other hardware enhanced illusions … the pervue of HDCP.

Thanks Specmon at Scotsnewsletter for bringing this must read article to our attention.
