Intel tried this crud before, and it was a big failure, and in the end, was ruled as anti-competitive and in contravention of interstate trade regulations. It failed faster than MS's Ali Baba failed.
And I can not see how Intel can just magically put DRM into Sandy Bridge - since Sandy Bridge is already in production in order to meet their release date, and systems and motherboards are ready to go - and Win7 is alredy out, and doesn't support such a feature anyway.
Nothing more than smoke - Hollywood should think about piracy less, and start thinking about making a good quality, original movie, rather than just trying to rip off John Wayne all the time, or making lame remakes of old stuff that tanks, or stop with the "epics" that are lame. Maybe they should hire some actors as well - you know, people that can actually act and are recognized for that, rather than people that only get hype because of TMZ or that they can't resist snorting the nose candy...
