    I think the MPAA need to learn about King Canute and recognise that they
    have as much chance of keeping this one quiet as they have of holding back
    the tide.

    How long before some of the DVD-cracking gurus get the code tatooed on their
    bodies - the ultimate in permanence.

    This reminds me of the story (maybe an urban myth) about an illegal
    immigrant to the USA who got the algorithm for some encryption technology
    tatooed on his body. Because it was illegal to export the algorithm outside
    the USA (and certainly to his native country), they couldn't deport him
    without contravening that law.

    Can I ask what I would use this code for? - I take it it's for copying
    HD DVD but where does the code come into it?

    Seeing as its cross posted I thope someone will take the time to
    explain.

    The code would need to be used by a program to decrypt dvd information. You
    wouldn't be able to "do" anything with it yourself, but it enables the
    writers of software that copies/decrypts DVDs to do the same with HD DVDs.

    It could very well be a deliberate leak/publicity stunt.

    I was wondering why it had been crossposted to umtm or, indeed, to
    rec.sport.soccer, at all.

    Because it's important to propagate it for the public record in order to
    resist the DMCA takedown notices being issued faster than buttered lard down
    a ski slope by the MPAA.

    Except that you are wrong, and it is already fixed.
     
  12. Really? How do they propose getting their hands on thousands of HD-DVD
    players to apply a firmawre patch?

    The only people who will get buggered are the people who watch HD-DVDs
    on Windows and their collection becomes worthless after the latest
    'patch Tuesday'.

    Geez, you pussies are so funny!

    You are about as "right thinking" as a freshly laid turd.
     
  15. You're a bunch of retarded pussies.
     

  16. You're a fucking retard as well.
