"It seemed like a contest computer hackers would sprint across
cyberspace to enter: Dismantle the music industry's latest
anti-piracy technology and win $10,000. Instead, many of the most
prominent members of the hacking community are refusing to
participate in the contest and are urging their peers to boycott it
because of one not-so-minor catch."
"'Thanks . . . but no thanks,' Don Marti, technical editor of
Linux Journal, recently wrote to contest organizers in a message
since posted on Web sites popular with hackers and programmers. 'I
won't do your dirty work for you.'"
"Marti said he has heard from hundreds of hackers and others
supporting the boycott. But Chiariglione said the protest hasn't
disrupted SDMI's plans. 'They are not helping,' he said, 'but they
are not disrupting.'"
