Warner Bros And Intel Sue 4k Content Protection "Stripper"

You know, it's generally a bad idea to mess with the likes of Warner Bros and Intel, especially when it comes to piracy. This company's big mistake was claiming its products comply with HDCP license requirements.

Warner Bros. and Intel's daughter company Digital Content Protection have sued a hardware manufacturer that creates devices enabling consumers to bypass 4K copy protection. The devices, sold under the HDFury brand, can be used by pirates to copy 4k video from streaming platforms as well as other HDCP 2.2 protected content.
