As you guys may or may not know, Digg had a prominent article this morning that revealed a hack of HD-DVD players that allowed people to take the film off of the cd. At this point in time, every article on the digg main page has to do with the hack, except from a different angle. Apparently, Diggs coverage of the hack ticked off some important people in the copyright business. Now digg is reporting that they have to remove every entry that eludes to the hack. I thought it was pretty awesome that the articles on digg mustered over 10,000 diggs, which means that the hack must have been viewed by hundreds of thousands of people (I am just making up numbers, but I bet they are reasonably close.). I love how fast information can spread in the right hands to the right people. Talk about the worst form of viral advertising...
