>is Decker a replicant? Well no coz he's in the new film and he's aged. Fuck you Hollywood.

So, someone turned off Decker's DRM - big deal.

Replicants were built with a finite lifespan as a form of security, that is to say that the finite lifespan was a human creation and not an inherent property of Replicants. Not only does it seem plausible that this limitation could be removed (either because someone found a backdoor or other security hole, or the company that built him had its own reason for removing it - or not actually implementing it in the first place), but it seems implausible that such a security measure could never be circumvented.
