Intel Threatens To Use The DMCA Against Anyone Who Uses The HDCP Crack
from the that'll-win-them-over dept
Well, isn’t this nice? Intel, who recently confirmed that the HDCP master key was, in fact, leaked, has also decided that it’s going to threaten to sue anyone who makes use of it, under the DMCA’s anti-circumvention clause. The last gasp effort of those who still want to believe in DRM: after it’s cracked, they’ll wave the DMCA at you. Perhaps rather than falling back on DMCA threats, Intel could spend its efforts explaining to Hollywood why DRM is a mistake.
