Does a monitor have to have an HDMI input in order to display commercial Blu-Ray films?

Are HDMI cables a requirement for watching commercial Blu-Ray movies? If I put a Blu-Ray drive in my computer, will I be able to watch Blu-Ray movies on a monitor that is hooked up via some non-HDMI cable? (DVI, VGA, whatever)

I remember reading a long time ago about Blu-Ray DRM, and that the HDMI cable was a link in the chain. Is that the case, or did things play out differently? If it is a problem, is there software to get around that limitation?
