Watch this Space
Ok, the anti-sharing folk in Hollywood keep losing on issues like DeSS. But their real problem has always been that we carbon based lifeforms do not actually have the personal equipment to process digital signals. Ones and zeros zipping by mean neither music nor The Two Towers to our digitally untutored senses.
We meat machines need to have digital converted into pictures and sounds. Which means letting intellectual property out into the analog world where it, by definition, is not encrypted.
Now as quick as you can say camcorder any analog signal can be captured and redigitalized at the cost of a slight degradation of quality. And once redigitalized it can be up loaded and shared. End of copy protection.
The Analog Reconversion Discussion Group chartered by the big brains of the Copy Protection Technical Working Group is going to address this rather catastrophic glitch in the copyprotection system.
How? Beats me. If I can see it so can a Sony camcorder. If the camcorder can't neither can I. That's some catch that catch 22.
Stay tuned....I smell a "trusted devices" argument coming up. Which I will write more about later.
