The HD-DVD crack debacle

This has been an interesting one to watch, not because a key has been circulating that allows users to disable the copy protection on Blu-ray and HD-DVD, but because of the effect of the scramble to stop the key spreading. It's really only succeeded in making the matter worse - for instance, when Digg tried to pull all postings of the key, users only posted more and even flooded the site at one point.

There's a reason why it's called user generated content - and if you run a site like that, it belongs to the community.
