Comment How about DRM? (Score 1) 500

Let's say you had the software that allows you to publish "protected" sound and video files. Wouldn't you be able to encode media in a way that requires you to manually authorize each viewing? I suppose the whole point of DRM is to be able to non-interactively allow playback from an authorized computer, but it would nice to hack that stack to require a manual intervention for the decryption to proceed. Having a DRM auth server on computer may be non-suspicious enough to avoid assumption of guilt for possession of encrypted secrets. If your computer were searched or seized, then you might get into trouble, explaining that the DRM-protected content was benign and not possible to re-authorize.
