So the real purpose of the rush to exclusive use of HDMI for interconnection is to prevent joe average from ever being able to make a copy of anything. It also makes the prior investments in things like cameras and recorders obsolete, since no interface will be provided.

Much moore profit because of less competition. Great fior the suppliers, bad for the consumers.
