DoJ cracks down on piracy.

bi0s writes "David M. Rocci, 22, of Blacksburg, Va., who used the online screen name "krazy8," pleaded guilty on December 19, 2002, in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, to conspiring to import, market and sell circumvention devices known as modification (or "mod") chips in violation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

So here is my question. How long until the use of any MOD chips will be prohibited?
What about the Xbox Linux project? Yes, I know, they are not trying to play pirated games or software, but still; you are defeating all the security features built into the machine.
