Well ... and accessing the DVD you bought using
DeCSS is restricted by DMCA as well. Currently.
The CD was sent unsolicited. It is a gift.
I own it. Therefore, I should be able to access
it, no? How is this different than the arguments
we are using to claim the ability to access the
DVD we bought, bypassing CSS?
