The Hollywood cartels may try to get hardware companies to put in DRM controls via HDMI with the promise not to use them for 7-8 years.
The effect is that if your
screen or recorder isn’t blessed by Hollywood, they can limit the video
they send to it to a low-resolution image. Manufacturers who want the
full signal have to enter into the HDMI license agreement and agree to
cripple their hardware in lots of ways — and have to promise not to
make their equipment compatible with anyone else’s, unless they, too,
agree to cripple their hardware.
