    its a little biased too, it says at the start of the article

    but then spends the rest of it slating ATi alone.

    Nvidia don't sell graphics cards and so it is nothing to do with them if a certain card is HDCP compliant or not. While ATI do make some of the ATI gfx cards and have sold gfx cards advertised as HDCP compliant when they are not, Nvidia have not done this.

    The real fault lies in HDCP in itslef. But if you want to pass blame, then blame the manufactures.

    which tells us that even though nvidia dont sell cards directly, there tech was still being passed of as compliant when it wasnt and so both are to blame regardless of whether it be directly or indirectly, and thus the article shouldnt be loading both barrols and aiming at just 1 manufacturer.
