Intel says Pentium D does not integrate DRM

Some sites claimed Intel's new dual-core Pentium D would contain Digital Rights Management (DRM) technology to prevent piracy of copyrighted material but yesterday a spokeswoman from Intel reacted to these accusations. She told the press that the Intel Pentium D processor nor the 945 Express chipset contains DRM technology.

She further added Intel is not integrating DRM technologies right into its hardware, but rather supports existing technologies, if they are used by copyright holders.
"Many of Intel's products today, including those just mentioned do work with existing content protection technologies out there including DTCP-IP. In the second half of 2005, Intel will deliver an updated graphics driver that will also support additional content protection technologies including COPP, HDCP, CGMS-A, and others," Skoog said.
