    I've seen the HDCP definition around. What exactly is it?

    Are you trolling the Plasma forum nathan_silly? ;)

    There are two camps of people: one who think that it's the end of the world, and no one should buy any display technology today unless it has compatibility with this potential copy protection mechanism, and the other camp who think that it's overblown hyperbole and it will fail anyway.

    Cheers. If you mean my comments regarding ppl using cheap players and Plasma's- I just think it's absurb. Would I buy a Transport, DAC, Pre-Power system worth say £20,000 and use £100 Eltax speakers? no.

    IF the £100 speakers sounded as good as £10,000 speakers, which would you buy?

    No idea what that's about nathan, haven't seen the post you are referring to here.

    Sorry for any offence, I was joking – thought there may be (yet) another RPtv versus plasma in the offing.

    See the title of by first post "High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection", that's what it is; and Google will help you find out every detail of it.

    That's the puppy! ;)

    Is this one company, who is proposing this solution, and all the raucous discussion on US bulletin boards is really PR? Are Digital Content Protection, LLC in the process of selling it to content owners, i.e. studios? Are Digital Content Protection, LLC owned by all the studios, it's licenees, or are they a private company?

    e.g. We have a product, let's kick up a stink and get a load of coverage, customers may take us more seriously and buy our (probably expensive) system/mechanism/intellectual property. It's a classic strategy.

    Just because someone is a licenee, doesn't mean they plan to fully implement a system either. Besides, the only studio/content owner listed is Warner Bros.
