Re: [dvd-discuss] DMCA tentacles extend to garage door opener

This is almost hilarious......Chamerlain admits that they have a resynchronization sequence, . In effect a master key and now wants to use the DMCA to keep that secret.....but what's also funny is that they seem to be  claiming patent infringement too  patent #4,750,188 which looks to be pretty obvious as well as bogus
