HDCP a standard built not for the users benefit.

The HDCP standard is there to protect copyright holders, its on your kit not for your benefit, but for their benefit, the aspect of its thats irritating, is that for the user its just another headache to have to take into account when hooking technology together, such as my dell 2405fpw which is a great monitor in many respects does 1080p, works great.

Which im now expected by industry to replace regardless, because most hdcp kit wont talk to it, PS3 included etc on any digital connection, basically HDCP increases the potential to cause conflicts, incompatibilities, and things to go wrong, and generally waste more of the computer users life, which is what most manufacturers and software developers seem to be doing nowadays, wasting more of the users life than necessary to increase their own financial benefit.
