DeCSS DVD hack still up

Last week, a U.S. court sided with Jack Valenti and the Motion Picture Association of America, ordering Emmanuel Goldstein to remove links to DeCSS code from his 2600 site. The information, however, is still available on a host of non-U.S. sites. Among those linking to the code that allows the decryption of DVDs is 2600 Australia, even though Australian legislation has been introduced that may, if passed, force that site to remove the link. Reaction to the anti-DeCSS ruling has been significant. Goldstein’s lawyer, paid by the Electronic Frontier Foundation, has announced that he will appeal and the effort is being widely supported.
