Thread: New Copyright Protection Cracked By Princeton

  1. #1
    Pretty interesting...all the new CD's coming out soon with copyright protection can easily be defeated by holding down the "shift" key

    http://www.msnbc.com/news/977144.asp?0cv=CB20

    Ha. Although the record industry is downplaying it, the Phd from Princeton ruined millions of dollars worth of software development. All by pressing and holding down the "shift" key...

    $25 million wasted on a pen that works in space and millions wasted in copy protection that can be easily defeated.

    Though simple, the act of holding down the Shift key in order to enable copying does let computer users know they’re doing something unauthorized, he said. That alone will dissuade many people from making copies, he added.
    that shift key feels a lot more intimidating now

    I guess with the next level of copy protection you'll have to press and hold Shift + C at the same time. Forcing people to use that extra finger will solve the problem.

    Actually....this was the guys docorate thesis to get his PhD.....if you're gonna get a dang PhD in computer programming, then it should be something that will benefit mankind...like pressing the "shift" key. Very cool. I hope he's some stoner d00d.

    If I find a link to his White Paper, I'll post it here....hard to find though...I don't think it's published yet to the public.
