sharing my new favorite numbers!
I have sixteen new favorite numbers, they hold special emotional meaning for me, and I would like to share them with the community. I've written them in hexadecimal since I think it looks nicer oh I also added them to my signature so I can share a little with each post.

Favourite numbers? That's not something I can relate to. For what reason would you prefer one number over another? The only reason I can think of preffering numbers is I would prefer MY six numbers would come up in this week's lottery...
For those who don't follow these sorts of things:
The industry will have their work cut out for them, trying to send cease and desist orders to every forum/blog/message board/etc on the internet

Ah now I see! I thought justDIY's original posting was a bit weird.
I can certainly see the appeal of that set of numbers now that I know it's relevance!
So let me get this straight. HD DVD had a content lock-in system (DRM protection) to stop unauthorised copying etc. And the whole system is held ransom to one set of codes which can be made use of by the masses to defeat the protection system on a number (all?) titles?
That's a bit of a rubbish protection scheme then, isn't it? A system based around such a weakness is bound to be compromised sooner or later. And it's certainly no good trying to keep it off the internet, that's just not going to happen!
My feeling is that piracy is bad (although I'm not an angel in this respect) but I also find DRM protection to be so restrictive that it's not really fair on the legitimate buyer. I paid for a few Ebooks with DRM protection, and that means I can only view them on my computer. As it happens they were technical Electronics books and I'd have liked to be able to burn them to disc and take them with me for reference wherever I go. Can't do it.
I also own a lot of music DVDs which I'd like to copy so I can play them in my car without having to worry about them being lost, damaged or stolen. Well, unless I defeat the protection systems I can't.
DRM isn't fair, really.

this encryption code is already being revoked, so it will only work on hd-dvd titles already produced and those currently in various delivery channels.
but the process used to obtain these numbers will work again and again, invalidating the aacs (?) protection used on hd-dvd.
drm is very silly, and the industry just makes it worst by first claiming that aacs encryption would be unbreakable, and then ticking off the internet / hacker community with stuff like censorship and take-down letters.
It would have been cracked soon enough, anyways...
Edit:horrible typo error...

any drm scheme that relies on security through obscurity is fundamentally flawed
encrypting a disc, and then giving the end user all the keys (some hidden on the disc, some hidden in the player) is just asking for trouble.
You "cracked" up a long time ago Marks
