No ICT ’till 2010

Fantastic!!! Apparently movie studios have cut a back-room deal agreeing not to use that terrible Image Constraint Token and HDCP until 2010. What this means is that people with analogue HD screens will not have to watch some rubbish 540p down-graded HD-DVD video until they buy a new screen which supports HDCP. I understand the requirement to protect content, but using a system that would adversly affect legitimate buyers really sucks. Similar to that terrible WMVHD DRM region protection. Anyway, at least that is off my chest until 2010.
