Has Sony Enabled Use of Capture Cards for PS4?

Hello.

I was wondering if someone could shed some light on a particular subject.

I was thinking about starting my own Youtube channel that would be centered around giving reviews to PS4 games. However, I'm not quite sure if Sony has patched the PS4 yet that would lift the HDCP policy in order for capture cards to properly work on the PS4. I read on a few articles from the internet that Sony reversed their policies on capture cards and that they would allow the use of them once the necessary patch/system update arrived. Does anyone know if this system update has happened yet? Does anyone in here currently use a capture card for their PS4?

Capture cards are a heavy investment so I need to be sure that the necessary patch has landed before I drop the cash for an independant capture card device. If I could get some feedback about this from people that know more about it, I'd greatly appreciate your contribution. Thanks guys.

No, it has not. Does anyone in here currently use a capture card for their PS4? Apparently some people have found a way around it, try Google searching.
