The Null Device
The SDMI incident:
Did Professor Felten bend over on command
from the RIAA, or
has the RIAA
shot itself in the foot
over the SDMI paper? Salon's Janelle Brown suggests
that the RIAA's silencing of a prominent academic is likely to get the DMCA
thrown out or seriously emasculated; that is, of course, discounting the
possibility that the RIAA's all-star legal team persuades the judge that the
research in question was of the sort that should not be publicised, much like
the NSA's cryptography research.
