HDCP is a completely artificial restriction. Decrypted discs (and you will
need to decrypt discs in order to play them in linux) will play perfectly fine without HDCP. If however, you have a display device that requires HDCP, then you're screwed. Do like Spyke said a few posts earlier - avoid such devices like the plague. You DON'T need HDCP, it's pure crap forced onto you for absolutely no benefit.
