    I stumbled across this article from PC World. http://www.pcworld.com/news/article/0,aid,122738,00.asp

    Do these forms of encryption affect OSX and Apple's Cinema Displays at all? On a related note, why the heck did MS insist on supporting HD-DVD because they allow you to rip your media onto the computer when this sort of encryption will nullify that feature? One more reason I hate MS.

    Apple's Cinema Displays don't support HDCP. We'll likely see hacks come out on the market to circumvent the asinine DRMs. Where's Jon when you need him? ;)

    WTF! I hate when industry has everyone by their nuts. THis nothing short from monopoly. They release a DVD that requires a new hardware just because they want to protect their content? Anyway, it won't be long before that hardware is widely available, so what do they plan t do then to stop piracy- a self-destroying data, exploding DVDs, will we have to register our systems first with each DVD just to watch it?

    Microsoft doesn't spend so much time and money to make their OS secure as on integrating those copy protection shi**.
