Just a number..

What do you think is this number: 09-f9-11-02-9d-74-e3-5b-d8-41-56-c5-63-56-88-c0 ?

Some strange satanic chant that will bring about Armageddon? errrrrh.. no.. Well the MPAA think it just might.

You might have noticed that has *EXPLODED* with lots of stories about this number.

What is this number? Its the HD DVD encryption key is what it is. The MPAA are going after people who post it with cease and desist letters... They claim that this number is their intellectual property! huh??

Wikipedia locked out (password protected) the page with the number. Digg followed.
They initially started deleting all the stories that contained this number. This caused such an uproar, that hundreds of digg users started submitting stories over and over again. Heres a picture of the front page. After consideration they decided to tough it out and let the stories be posted.

What next? Is Microsoft going to claim they own the intellectual property of the number 7 and that you will need to remove it from your keyboard?


Post about this number on your blog. Stop this lunancy.
