Vista content protection FAQ from Microsoft

In response to Peter Gutmann's paper (referenced here a couple of posts ago) Microsoft has issued a faq on the Windows Vista Team Blog. My reading of the faq suggests that some of the more inflammatory concerns may not be worries. However there is enough spin and fine print to suggest that there remains plenty to worry about. The faq is a fine exercise in implicitly and explicitly suggesting that Vista content protection is a natural evolution of the feature set, with lots of collateral improvements as side benefits. Not sure I'm buying that line....
