Since the AACS (the protection of HD-DVD and Blu-Ray against copying) is technically broken, there was only one lock left: after unlocking tools, there was the need for the publication of the needed key to allow easy operation.

The MPAA tries to ban this famous key number from the Internet while it keeps popping up everywhere. This week, it’s the rage all other the web: Let’s publish the key.

Internet users visibly do not want to be stuck again with one of those technical measures that do not (and cannot) stop real pirates and are creating more problem for loyal users/buyers. So, this is quite a large movement we are participating to.

    Tonight, after Digg removed an article from its home page, Internet users spent the whole night proposing new posts for Digg to promote. All of them were (like my post) a thinly disguised way of presenting again the famous key.

    It seems that now Digg is no longer ready to remove any of these pages (“we heard the message”). They no longer want to fight the Internet users ready to say that they don’t want to be forced a DRM that they don’t accept.

    It is now clear for all that HD-DVD protection is clearly broken and only Blu-Ray still has some protection layers to see stripped. Let’s give ’em some time and they will be both broken open (like DVD).
