Asking for Reason[edit]

Hey,

What is reason for my link removing ? , Is it against rules ? Is it not related post? Did I added wrong anchor ?

Thanks — Preceding unsigned comment added by AlexHales (talkcontribs) 08:59, 4 January 2018 (UTC)

Please have a look at our external links policy. Additionally, external links are generally placed in their own section, not in the main article content. --Chris (talk) 17:02, 4 January 2018 (UTC)

Hi![edit]

I love you! --2601:205:C100:424D:FC71:7339:EDB3:9EEC (talk) 06:42, 13 January 2018 (UTC)

refute CSS changes[edit]

You removed a few words from the article:

Libdvdcss is actually _invaluable_ since there is no other reliable source (for all three types of protection).

Protection measures have not been completely defeated! If the drive adheres to region protection there is nothing you can do. And even if the drive let you access the feature, but not the title keys, then there is no guarantee that "Ethan Hawkes" approach will work.

An encyclopedia should not make claims like "___ is invaluable." That is a judgement of worth, a point of view. Wikipedia could quote a source claiming that something is invaluable, if it substantially contributes to the article. --Chris (talk) 02:13, 24 October 2018 (UTC)
Fair enough. However, I removed your other edit since there is no evidence for your claim (yet?). Cheers, Wicky75 (talk) 14:47, 10 November 2018 (UTC)
Hi, again. You added to the article: "However, drives which do not enforce regional restrictions are inexpensive and _widely_ available, which makes regional restrictions largely ineffective as a component of CSS."
It is true, that many drives permit access to the feature on region code mismatch (which makes them vulnerable to "Ethan Hawkes" prediction; which then still may fail, especially if the producer leaves "unsafe" sectors unprotected -- so you wouldn't have a chance to get the title-key for the remaining "strong" sectors). However, RPC I drives (that's what you mean, don't you?) are (to my knowledge) quite rare. Do you have a source for your claim?
I won't argue that circumvention is quite easy (if you know what you're doing), however, for the regular guy it might be not that easy. Hence, libdvdcss (the popular lib that is the de-facto CSS circumvention for free software) states, that regional protection is an issue.
Thanks and Cheers, Wicky75 (talk) 13:15, 16 November 2018 (UTC)
