"Today is about taking time out of your usual routine to speak out in favour 
of a DRM-free society. We do not have to accept a future where our

Oh, I will pay for things. *If* they are mine afterwards. I will not buy 
things where someone tells me on what devices I can use it. Or not

I stopped buying CDs nearly completely the day I could not play a CD in my 
car stereo. Copy proteced CDs have *cost* the music industry in my case 
(and I am certain not just in mine) in lots of lost sales

For the same reason I will not buy a blueray player in the foreseeable 
future. It has DRM and will limit how I can play the disc I actually paid 
for.

No way

Leave it to the thieves like flatfish that the industry felt the need to 
introduce measures which ultimately inconvenience only the paying 
customers

DRM protects people from Freetards stealing their work and not paying.

It has its place if it does not overly impinge the legitimate purchaser.

In the same way I am not insulted by showing my cinema or train ticket I
am not insulted by being asked to prove I purchased SW.

Why are you? Oh. Silly me.

Look, it is Hadron the Bigot. Companies try to prevent unauthorized 
copying/playing (or stealing) media with DRM. It doesn't work very well. 
Never has.

Which it does.

4:2:2 to 4:4:4 conversion
Hi, I have subsampled 4:4:4 image using 15-tap filter into 4:2:2 image. Now, in order to view 4:2:2 image, I need to convert it back into 4:4:4 image. I have repeated the chroma samples to create chroma values for alternate luma samples erstwhile without chroma. However, I am doubtful of the method. Do I need to interpolate to create the missing chroma samples? What is generally done in such a scenario??
