DeCSS A-OK in Norway

"DVD Jon" Johansen was acquitted Tuesday of all charges brought against him for his authorship of the widely-publicized DeCSS code (not here), which enables Linux users to view legally purchased DVD content on their computers.

Hooray! All I need to do now is hop on a plane to Norway in order to watch The Powerpuff Girls Movie on my Debian laptop!

Incidentally, the PPG Movie has the best superhero origin story of any comic or cartoon, ever. They start off as evil Bad Guys! How cool is that?

So, in closing, this decision reminds me of a scene in Heathers, wherein The People are cast in the role of "Ram," the mean jock, and the MPAA as the "The Geek."

EXT - HIGH SCHOOL PARKING LOT - DAY

THE PEOPLE have the MPAA pinned to the pavement, one arm twisted painfully behind THE MPAA's back.

THE PEOPLE: Say you like to suck big DeCSS!
THE MPAA: Ow!
THE PEOPLE: Say it! Say it!
THE MPAA: Okay, okay... you like to suck big DeCSS!

THE PEOPLE wrench THE MPAA's arm even further.

THE MPAA: OW! Okay.. I like to suck big DeCSS. Mmmm, mmm, can't get enough of them. Are you satisified?

Satisfied, for now.

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
