The HDCP exploit Intel tried to downplay a couple of weeks ago is now being offered to the public as open-source software in hopes that others will improve it.

The code would let companies and, more likely, individuals create devices that support HDCP without paying for a licensing agreement.

Intel has threatened to sue anyone who makes an exploit readily available, but exemptions from the DMCA  may prevent these actions since many viewers would be breaking HDCP to access legitimate content on displays that don't have HDCP support.
