Analog Hole

The Analog Hole refers to digital content that has copy protection. Regardless of the digital protections, if music can be played on speakers, it can also be recorded. If text can be printed or displayed, it can also be scanned and recognized. In this manner, the copy protection can be circumvented for some types of material.
