Just as the MPAA is preparing to offer movies to customers at home while they're still in theaters by limiting playback to DRM-protected digital outputs only, the HDCP protocol they rely on may have been cracked wide open. All devices that support HDCP, like Blu-ray players, set-top boxes and displays with HDMI inputs, have their own set of keys to encrypt and decrypt protected data and if keys for a particular device are compromised, they can be revoked by content released in the future which will then refuse to play. Now, posts have been floating around on Twitter about a supposed "master key" which renders that protection unusable since it allows anyone to create their own source and sink keys.

This should be interesting....

Dont know if this is legit: http://pastebin.com/kqD56TmU

Yay, maybe now I can finally watch my legally paid for BDs on my HDCP compliant HTPC and non-HDCP compliant 42" LCD. What exactly is the point of HDCP other than to create another annoying product limiting standard? How is it stopping pirates?

where there's a will, there's a way.

i guess you can't blame the content producers from trying, though...

And bezels splitting through your movie.


On topic, the MPAA is shooting themselves in the foot with this new service that allows users to watch movies at home while it's still in theatres. They're just going to be leaked that much quicker.

Thanks MPAA.

This is a kick to the balls as far as the MPAA is concerned.

WE NEED MORE! HIT THEM WHERE IT HURTS THE MOST!

I take it you have a nice view upon that high horse, eh?

News flash: DRM is bad. Just as bad as the piracy it allegedly prevents.

Not explicitly. I support the result, not the method.

this isn't about supporting piracy, this is about getting a movie I paid for to play on a monitor I paid for.
