Default Re: Linux + HDCP

I think the issue is not that it is so difficult to develop, but that the hardware vendors have signed agreements that they will not develop it for open systems.
So the money is not required to buy developer time, but to bribe the developer.
And of course once it surfaces, he will not be a developer anymore and the hardware manufacturer may lose his license.
