T.13 hoses down CPRM fears

Author: JT Smith

The Register reports on the ongoing controversy surrounding CPRM -- the format that would introduce copy protection (among other items) as standard features in all ATA/ATAPI disk drives. When computer users reacted with outrage, the organization in charge reacted with surprise, claiming that it never once proposed that CPRM be included in the new ATA/ATAPI standard, honest! Evidence to the contrary can be found on the T.13 committee's official Web site.
