Missing the point
Those of you speaking about the feasibility of reverse engineering are dutifully - and to be frank, quite dangerously - missing the point. DMCA already tries to limit reverse engineering and it is not the last of its kind. This battle is going to grow harsh and nasty as the old guard becomes more frightened. The author is correct, we need a political machine. Sooner rather than later. It is not and never will be acceptable to allow something like this to happen simply because a select few will be able to find a way around it. Those few will be forced underground and hunted, quite unromantically.
