Time Warner posts a link to banned material

Author: JT Smith

UpsideToday is reporting on the curious instance of TimeWarner posting a link, even though they'd pressed legal action against many other sites for linking to the same material. The link, when followed, led to a list of LiViD (a program used for decrypting DVDs for use under Linux) and DeCSS (the more general decryption code). Time Warner is currently suing a large list of defendants because they linked to the same code.
