This is NOT the HD-DVD key

Posted by Daniel Brahneborg on 2007 May 2

Just as normal DVD’s are encrypted, so are HD-DVD’s. In the latter case both a global key and a bunch of player specific keys are used. First the latter ones were found for a particular player, and a while ago the global key was found. Using this, and some software, any HD-DVD can be played and copied to a hard drive for later viewing.

Today Slashdot has an article about the censoring of this number. Writing it seems illegal, but I ought to be able to write that it is NOT f6 06 ee fd 62 8b 1c a4 27 be a9 3a 9c a9 77 3f. (Thanks to AJVM for the tip.)

Damn, the movie industry is stupid.
