    So you cant tap the data anywhere.

    Think

    encrypted music fed to an encrypted audio controller to speakers which
    decrypt and add watermarks

    encrypted video decrypted and macrovision + watermarked only in buffers
    the CPU cant access

    audio input that has legally mandated watermark checks and wont record
    watermarked data.

    That is the dream these people have. They'd also like the OS to scan for
    "illicit" material and phone the law if you do, and to have a mandatory
    remote shutdown of your box

    (and if you read the MS media player license anyone who agrees to it signed
    up to that)
