Old projects never die Here's a great article tracking how a secure playback mechanism for DVDs morphed in Palladium, Microsoft's patented Digital Restrictions Management operating system. From my time at IBM I can see how projects drift out of research, and then in and out of products. But one part is clear: Palladium does nothing to improve user security and everything to protect media from being copied. It's not clear if unsigned media can be played though.
