26000 DeCSS (DVD code. etc.) DMCA

There may be more current info, on this. But since it hasn't been
mentioned here...

Technology/business/first amendment/and the future of copyright???

Jon Johanssen wrote software that let him watch DVD movies on his
computer. The code was posted at a hacker magazine, 2600 (editor, Emmanuel
Goldstein) was sued..and a NY judge in August ruled in favor of the
companies that sued...8 media companies, TimeWarner, (MPAA of course..)
For the editor's comments on the case, and a comments on DMCA, See:
