Intel rushed to disconfirmed that its new dual-core Pentium D processor and
accompanying 945 chipset is embedded with digital rights management, which would
prevent unauthorized copying of online content
Kari Skoog, a US-based Intel spokesperson, told ComputerWire.com that the Pentium D
and its chipsets do not have unannounced, embedded DRM technology.
Skoog said many Intel products support several existing copy protection or content
protection technologies. This includes support for DTCP (digital transmission content
protection)-over-IP, which is a copy protection mechanism used to distribute content
from one device to another within a home network (as opposed to DRM, which applies
to online content). DTCP-IP was developed a couple of years ago by Intel, Toshiba,
Hitachi and Matsushita.
She also said that in the second half of 2005, Intel would release an updated graphics
driver that will also support additional content protection technologies including COPP,
