News.com links to DeCSS program
Slashdotters discuss this item: "In less than a week News.com has published 2 articles ([Oct 3] and [Oct 7] ) talking about copyright law and the DMCA where they LINK to DeCSS. Not source but compiled Windows version called DeCSS.exe. News.com know that 2600 lost their fight for linking to DeCSS so I wonder why they are doing this. Trying to make a point? Civil disobedience? An honest mistake?"
