        I was aware that he may have been being sarcastic that was why my reply was of a facetious nature...

        What he had said sounds good in theory but would be impractical in practice, I meant to demonstrate the fault in his thinking. When we begin to build enforcement mechanisms into hard drives it is difficult to know in advance what type of Pandora's Box we will be opening. Who is to say what type of mechanism will be included next? Besides the fact that those who wished to find a way around the copyright enforcement mechanisms would probably just purchase hard drives manufatured by foreign companies that would not include the mechanisms on their hard drives.
