I’ve never even watched an HD-DVD
I don’t have any HD-DVDs or software or hardware HD-DVD players.
I don’t have any rips of HD-DVD content on any machine or drive I own or use.
I don’t have any software or hardware that is used in pirating HD-DVD content.
I have absolutely no intent of pirating HD-DVD content (or current gen DVD content for that matter).
That said, the AACS has really gotten a bit too big for it’s britches and I think the current fight between Digg/Kevin Rose and the AACS is one of those things that is going to set a precedent for how we use and view data. It’s (IMHO) about encryption. It’s about whether we have a right to use the most basic mathematical building blocks, numbers, in any form we want. The 32-bit number in question does not, in and of itself, break any law regarding the dissemination of material.
To make a long story short, my feelings on the subject are thus.
Eat my anus AACS.
