Go Forth and Copy No More

The California Supreme Court issued its long-awaited decision in DVD Copy Control v. Bunner and ruled that Hollywood can stop those who decrypt the technology that allows DVDs to be copied.

The Court resolved the issue of whether free speech controls over trade secret law, and held for that good, old-fashioned capitalist mentality (which writes my paycheck). Trade secrets won out, and cash registers will continue to cha-ching with the sales of DVDs. The Napster revolution stumbles once more.

That is until the next website posts the code to decode DVDs.
