|On August 29, 2003, the Calfornia supreme court ruled that publishing the source code for DeCSS, the program to un-encrypt DVD content is illegal, not protected under the first amendment of the United States.|
This is my protest. For some time, the background image of this site will be a very artistic representation of the DeCSS source code. It would look very nice hanging in a frame on your wall, and I think it looks great on this site.
Here, here and here are other people's protest against this kind of injustice.
I don't want to make illegal copies of of DVDs, I just want to watch them, legally, on my otherwise perfectly performing Linux computer. Know why I can't? Because the MPAA dicided that not only do I have to pay them $30.00 for every DVD I buy, but I need to pay them licensing fees for the program to watch those same DVDs. That's unfair, cruel, and greedy. As American as apple pie, but the worst face of capitalism, and I won't stand for it.
