Might this be the best way to stop all this HDCP/DVI nonsense?

    Hello all,

    I had been thinking hard on the idea of buying an HD set in the next few months when I came across all this stuff about copy protection and such. I must admit that it deterred me at first. Then it hit me...THAT'S WHAT THE STUDIOS ARE HOPING FOR!

    Certainly industry insiders frequent forums like this and see the reaction to these proposed standards. And no doubt they get happy since the more people that wait on buying and HDTV the better because then fewer people will be complaining when their sets become obsolete.

    So why not everyone that is on the fence, including myself, go ahead and take the plunge? Make a showing that we as consumers will support the products that make sense and if they don't like it, tough.

    I don't want this to sound juvenile and really look forward to some discussion. What other ways can we as consumers stand up for ourselves?

    Regards,

    Dan Hine
