"The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) suit
against three New York Webmasters who made available for download
the controversial DeCSS utility which defeats the CSS
encryption scheme on DVDs appears to be founded on a queer
blend of statistical rot and hacking hysteria, not to mention a few
"Among the more transparent stretchers to which the MPAA has
been clinging is a claim that DeCSS is flooding the Internet with
pirated DVDs. Among the more outrageous is a claim that decrypted
DVDs are now being sold in hard copies."
"The lie here is one of omission; it simply is not necessary to
decrypt CSS to make a hard copy or ten thousand of a DVD, so the
existence of such copies in no way indicates prior use of the DeCSS
utility, as every rocket scientist and his lowbrow deaf-mute
assistant well knows."
