  3. This amounts to a hill of beans. There will always be ways around it.

  4. It amounts to a pain in the ass for people without HDCP compliant monitors.

    are there any compliant computer monitors? some claim hdmi "support", but don't claim to be fully compliant.

    it's not limited to just displays - "Hardware vendors are also barred from allowing their devices to make copies of content, and must design their products in ways that "effectively frustrate attempts to defeat the content protection requirements.""

    the "big brother" is built into the computer's motherboard chips really bothers me. next the chips will be reporting in on everything we listen to or watch.

    You are being paranoid now.

    Yes, pirates will always find ways around copy protection measures. But it will continue to be a pain in the ass for honest users who just want to buy their new toys and have them work.

    Sucks for the idiots that buy macbooks and stuff from itunes
    I'll never do either so i'm good for now 8)
    Apple's new MacBook lines include a form of digital copy protection that will prevent protected media, such as DRM-infused iTunes movies, from playing back on devices that aren't compliant with the new priority protection measures.

    There really are people who *overpay* for a *limited* crappy notebooks? or pay for a crappy quality DRM-infected music from online stores?!
    I don't believe it, mankind cannot be *that* stupid.
    It has to be yet another urban myth about such idiots (from the same category like jokes about blondes, which we all know aren't true at all )...

    Do PCs have an equivalent? Or is it manufacture dependant?
