If it doesn't relate to Debian, but you still want to share it, please do it here

From an academic point of view this discovery is an impressive achievement if it is true.

However, all of this seems like a lot of hype to me, really. I believe it is essentially impossible to provide content on media that people are able to play back but unable to copy. The reason for this thinking is that technology continually becomes more advanced and more powerful. In other words, whatever copy protection scheme is used will eventually become old and trivial to defeat.

Check out this ITP
The DDs on Planet Debian are totally berzerko about that number. However Matthew Garrett, May 3 remains unimpressed.

I think that ITP was filed as a joke...

But the current 'revolt' that's taking place all over the net these days is not really about cracking HD-DVDs but more about sticking it to the industry. "We got you this time and we'll get you again". If it hadn't been for the takedown requests I think the entire thing would have died a fairly quick death. After all, the entire idea behind keys is that they can be changed. But for now: "All your base are belong to us!"

I'd like to think it has more to do with the fact that we like to exercise our fair use rights without paying a large corporate entity to do so, ala DeCSS.

But sticking it to the man is always fun :lol:
