Madness!!! Apple Bends to Studios, Adds Copyright Protection to MacBooks | Gadget Lab from Wired.com. Talk about punishing the legal and paying user:  "Appearing to cave to Hollywood demands, Apple has quietly added a restrictive copyright
protection mechanism to its new MacBooks that is preventing customers from watching movies on external displays. Apple has secretly included
a copy protection scheme called High-bandwidth Digital Content
Protection
(HDCP) in the external display ports on the latest models of
it MacBooks, released in the middle of October.."
