HDCP, the copy protection intended to keep HDMI-beamed content on lockdown, was recently cracked. The new “master key” might not be very useful you, but it will keep torrenters frustrating the hell out of the MPAA. Wich is funny cause now HDMi is basically a thin DVI, it’s only a question of time until theres a program that “enables” any screen for HDCP content.
