Just wondering what's the point of HDCP? It prevents me from accessing the un-encrypted hi-def digital data. But if I could access it, what would I do with it? I'm not aware of any 'capture cards' for DVI signals. Surely pirates are more likely to copy the encoded data - eg. by taking an exact copy of the disk surface?? Alternatively they could hot-wire an HDCP display to gain access to the raw data (it must be accessible at some point within the display). I honestly can't see how HDCP will hinder piracy atall. But it's definately a major PITA for the general public who might have purchased non-HDCP displays.
