HDCP Is Hotly Debated Copyright Protection

According to BoingBoing (who got the data from Slashdot and TUAW) Apple is going to start putting HDCP technology into their monitors. This would prevent people from playing unapproved media on their Apple computer.

The technology is supposed to prevent copying, but when you’re just watching a video, you’re not copying it. It seems to be nothing more than a way to make people replace their monitors.

HDCP problems.
