It is properly licensed (AFAIK). Hong Kong is technically part of China but I believe is still trusted enough to get official support for BDA programs.

That said, don't get me wrong. The OP apparently believes that begging Apple and annoying forum users will somehow cause Apple to overturn almost 20 years of precedence and either support 4K optical playback directly or open up access to a security chip - one that has huge security holes in it, as I've explained to the OP multiple times - for 4K optical support when, AFAIK, they haven't opened up access to any third party, period. That's assuming Apple or whomever will make a formal BDA proposal to either allow for playback with a particular security setup or to accept a SW-only solution. That opens up a huge can of worms that I don't think anybody is willing to deal with, short of some deep-pocketed fool paying for a lot of work with minimal payoff. If Google opened up Widevine for more use cases, L1 Widevine could be a nice solution. They're not opening it up, though, and L1 isn't bulletproof either (although those in the know really keep a lid on their secrets). Throw in NVidia seemingly having no desire to adapt PlayReady, and creators of all other possible solutions not having any interest, and it's just not happening.
