The Null Device
Riot police shoot dead a demonstrator
at anti-globalisation protests; the
officers will probably be charged, but who gave the orders to shoot to kill?
Meanwhile, a Russian programmer is in jail for revealing the secrets of
Adobe's access controls (a crime under the DMCA), and hence
Alan Cox has
resigned from the USENIX committee in protest
. Whether this will make a
point or marginalise the penguinhead pirasite colony remains to be determined.
Meanwhile, the US Government has created a special elite cyber-cop agency
highly-trained aspheads to hunt down intellectual property thieves, crackers,
copyright violators and other enemies of capitalism
(and that means you, hiding there with the DeCSS source and the eight gig
of MP3s on your hard disk; don't think they cannot see you), further
escalating the War On Copying.
