Warner Bros. Trying To Block Devices That Get Around 4K Video Copyright Protection

Last week, both Warner Bros. and Intel’s Digital Content Protection (DCP) filed a lawsuit against China-based LegendSky, the makers of a line of products called HDFURY, which claim to allow users to get around HDCP 2.2. Warner Bros. says this circumventing of HDCP enables users to “access copyrighted works, make and/or distribute copies of copyrighted works, create derivative works of copyrighted works, or publicly perform copyrighted works, all without the permission of the copyright owner.” Meanwhile, DCP, which licenses the HDCP technology to some 550 different manufacturers, stands to lose business with the availability of devices that render HDCP meaningless. – Chris Morran, The Consumerist via TorrentFreak
