The funniest bit is that even if it was somehow magically perfected, people would get around it just fine by using a large HDTV and record using an expensive camcorder.
Sure, it wouldn't match the original quality, but it would probably be "good enough" for the vast majority of what's pirated. Just get on any torrent site and take a look at how many TS (hidden shaky camcorder in a movie theater) videos there are.

Finally I can see some useful 3D benchmark numbers with performance features enabled. Thank you, Michael.
I think a really relevant benchmark would be Minecraft (www.minecraft.net), since it is quite a popular game right now (will leave public beta on 11-11-2011) and has a native linux client. It works even on my centrino/rv350 system with ubuntu natty r300g, but only in a small window and with reduced distance and fog settings.
I'd be very interested to see how it runs on AMDs 4250, 6570, 5770, and 5850 with r600g + performance features.
how about benching the blender view-port performance in different modes?
this is something you actually use compared to benches like lightsmark
By viewport do you mean Blender Game Engine or just.. viewport?
Well, anyway I would be very interested in seeing some Gallium vs. blobs benchmarks that measure BGE 2.5+. In fact I might be willing to write some test profiles myself eventually (if I find the time).
