Forcing the analog sunset: the ugly side of the HD revolution

The so-called "analog hole" is the bane of Hollywood's attempt to control your entertainment life; put succinctly, if you can hear it or see it on today's consumer electronics devices, you can copy it, with rare exception. The reason is that sooner or later, most signals are converted to analog, and most analog playback devices lack DRM, and analog signals themselves are not particularly well suited to DRM control. Hollywood hates the analog hole, and they have introduced some shocking legislation to shut it down.
