No, _only_ copy protection mechanisms where everybody can read how it works is worth anything. If people know how it works and _still_ can't break it, _then_ it may be worth something. All the secretive bullshit has been cracked and will be cracked in the future. > Which is the reason why ATI doesn't implement it.

Why don't you show me the law that requires ATI to support Macrovision? You can't? Thought so. > Every hacked solution enabling ViVo functionality doesn't rely on specs.

Look at mplayer and Linux. Everyone can see how it works, what makes it tick, and it still outperforms the competition hands down. And there is lots of competition. > Where all specs open there'd be no competition -> Bullshit. > no developement because nobody would make profit on their product secrets as > there were none. Bullshit. Dex, why don't you just shoot yourself instead of polluting this mailing list with your senseless drivel? _______________________________________________ RTFM!!! http://www.MPlayerHQ.hu/DOCS Search: http://www.MPlayerHQ.hu/cgi-bin/htsearch http://mplayerhq.hu/mailman/listinfo/mplayer-users
