From Mercurycenter.com: "Hollywood has teamed up with some of the biggest players in computer storage
technology to build a copy-prevention scheme into every hard drive and
memory card -- opening a new front in the war against online piracy.
If widely adopted, the technology would make it more difficult for consumers to
duplicate copyrighted files such as music and movies without the permission of
the companies that own the rights. Hard drives and memory cards are used to
store information on everything from personal computers and MP3 music
players to digital cameras and palm-size organizers."
