[dvd-discuss] DCMA Criticism in SIAM News

In the Jan/Feb 2002 (Vol 35#1) of SIAM News there is an article on 
page 1 written by Sara Robinson titled "Awaiting DMCA 
Clarification, Researchers Proceed Cautiously." It begins, "Earlier 
this year, David Wagner...." The latest issue isn't online yet.

 I loved the quotation from Litvack (MPAA, VP , etc.) "Carrying a 
pocket knife on a plane in and of itself doesn't damage 
anything,...but we arrest people who do it because the potential for 
harm is so bad, we want to stop the action before the harm 
occurs..." and comparing Litvack's method to prosecuting knife 
manufacturers....I love the way that the MPAA toadies turn the fear 
and hysteria of a bunch of illinformed people into something 
advancing the DMCA.

So...David and Sara when/if you get this - Great Work!
