Default Upconverting CSS encrypted DVD's

I have read that encrypted DVD's will not be upconverted via HDMI on most upconverting players, and that the only way to upconvert these titles is to first make a backup copy (removing the encryption). Can anyone confirm this?
I don't undestand why the encryption would make any difference. After all, the DVD has to be decrypted before displaying the contents, regardless of the type of encryption used. Furthermore, a good HDTV should automatically "upconvert" all input signals to its native resolution. Can anyone shed further light on this? Thanks.
If this is true, then the value of upconverting players is greatly diminished.
