Sure the leaked key can be revoked, but it would require a re-encryption of all existing content and a forced software update to players. Even then, now that pirates know of this it will just be a cat v. mouse game of finding the next key.

>Starting a few weeks ago the Chinese company launched a range of new devices which allow users to strip the latest HDCP encryption. This hardware sits between a HDCP-compliant source device and another device, allowing it to pass on a “stripped” 4K signal.

They won't give a single fuck. China is truly the land of the free nowadays.
>Germans stealing stuff
Germans invented computers, cars, refrigerators, etc. and sent you to the fucking moon. You should show some respect.
I'm german myself bro
"Made in Germany" wasn't invented by germans but by brits because germans were copying british products left and right which brits thought to be of lesser quality

I'm German too bro, very interesting read. And really makes a good point in that the free and open sharing of ideas is for greater good than copyright is. Copyright keeps some people rich and society in the dark about many ideas. This free sharing approach encouraged any one, be they rich or poor, to read as everything was freely available and for far cheaper than the Jewish copyright trolls would allow.
Makes for an interesting counterargument regarding Germany's sudden surge in fining people for so called illegal downloads.
Once something is released to the public, it's public domain. That's the end of it. Can't someone simply saying that Kylie Ten kills Han Solo be considered illegal sharing ? That person shared information they didn't own copyrights to with someone who didn't pay the copyright owners. Seems like a stupid idea but that's really what us happening with this.
Same as people uploading their art to the internet then getting angry that someone put it on a shirt.
Public domain and the internet is humanity's domain. A place for the free sharing of ideas and information.
In summation, throw all Jews niggers muslims religious people and disabled people in the gas chamber.
Lets get humanity back on track.
maybe when all those old people in charge get replaced with people that grew up with technology things will change.
Now matter how they try all these locks on content will be bypassed, its a pointless waste of money.
They should spend it on providing a cheaper/better experience to the consumer.

>being this retarded
DRM is not meant to protect against piracy forever.
It's meant to delay the release process as much as possible so those who are really hyped for the thing pay for it.
Nobody cares if a movie from 2011 is released. but you bet your ass you are gonna be assraped if you leak a movie prerelease.
The problem this time around is that their shitty DRM got circumvented even before they started rolling their productions so now corporates' jimmies are rustled.
The same principle applies to games
HDCP 2.2 was broken in July 2015, not long before I retired.
There is no "finding the next key". There is nothing to revoke. It is a system break. It is dead. (Again.)
I shall shed no tears.
If you really did had a hand in designing it, OP (it took you 3 years for that quick fix?): think about the ethics of what you are doing, and stop being the enemy. You know that DRM will always lose the instant a good opponent has hardware in their hands and time on their hands. And we, as humanity, lose when you try to lock away our culture and history and create things which are defective by design.
I have no affiliation with the creators of this device, but everyone who has any device which doesn't support HDCP 2.2 could have a use for a protection stripper like that: it makes shit which is designed not to work, work.
