Da Vinci Code Solved! 09-F9-11-02-9D-74-E3-5B-D8-41-56-C5-63-56-88-C0

HD-DVD Decryption Key T-ShirtThe Da Vinci code has been solved. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is 09-F9-11-02-9D-74-E3-5B-D8-41-56-C5-63-56-88-C0 - the HD-DVD decryption key that Hollywood doesn't want you to know about. This number will let you copy your HD-DVDs as well as play them on Linux. This decryption key was posted on Digg.com and quickly attained elite status, with over 15492 Diggs before the story was pulled.

After Digg pulled the HD-DVD decryption key article and banned a Digg user, that riled up the Digg community and soon the entire Digg home page was filled with stories containing the decryption key. As Mike over at TechCrunch says, "The users had taken control of the site, and unless Digg went into wholesale deletion mode and suspended a large portion of their users, there was absolutely nothing they could do to stop it."

Jay Adelson, Digg CEO, after stating he has to abide by Digg's terms of use in order to avoid a lawsuit by Hollywood didn't anticipate the massive firestorm caused by this decryption number and did a quick turnabout when he said:
But now, after seeing hundreds of stories and reading thousands of comments, you’ve made it clear. You’d rather see Digg go down fighting than bow down to a bigger company. We hear you, and effective immediately we won't delete stories or comments containing the code and will deal with whatever the consequences might be.

If we lose, then what the hell, at least we died trying.
