What is this nonsense? (Anti DVD piracy chip)
Taken from a recent Edupage:
> SGS-THOMSON TAKES AIM AT DVD PIRACY
> SGS-Thomson Microelectronics has developed a computer chip that prevents
> would-be DVD pirates from making unlawful copies of movies from digital
> video disc players. The chip scrambles the disk's coding if it's duplicated
> on a VCR. (Investor's Business Daily 11 Sep 96 A6)
Anyone know anything about this? Sounds like nonsense to me ...
