    It also does not limit your freedom per-se. It's just an extension of the will of the content provider, and you are not forced to buy that content by any means.
    I know that DRM is not about security or at least my security
    DRM does limit my freedom when enabled.
    I am not buying anymore any games or media with DRM, I got burned in the past even though I bought it legally from original source.

But as long as it doesn't have to run untrusted big bloatware spying on my computing all the time, I don't care.
      It's certainly possible to buy boxes from China which present themselves as HDCP-compliant displays and then output a decoded HDMI signal... that doesn't change the fact that you need to pass an encrypted bytestream from the BluRay to the ME and then from the ME out the HDMI port.

      In fact, if I remember the architecture correctly, you get better performance that way because you're offloading the BluRay decryption to a processor that would otherwise be sitting idle.
