Hehe, I love this :-)
This article is as controversial as the DeCSS program. Believe me, SDMI would do anything to prevent the publishing of this paper.

This is the link to the paper that reports the working of SDMI and how it can be cracked. Now THESE guys are reverse engineers. I think noone of us is that good.....ah well....it was a university team under supervision of a professor, what else could you expect huh ;-)

enough talk:

I'm going to publish this on my site, I suggest as much people as possible do the same. If a few thousand people do this, they can't do shit.

He, he, he I was just reading in a HIFI magazine that the University team had been threatened with legal action if they released the papers and the team decided not to release it.

Just goes to show you can't hide the TRUTH.

Excellent stuff!

*SIGH* On what pathetic planet do we actually live on!?...... after reading some more articles concerning civil rights and the 'big industry' I have to conclude once more that this place we live on is so so sad.
We almost all grow up in a capitalist world where money is important, but until now I did not fully realize the global money- and powersickness that's ruling our world.
It may be a dark view, but from what I've seen (yet) of the world, there's no way I can express this in a more positive way.
In my life money is important too, but I've sworn to myself that this cancer of humandkind will never fully control the things I do.
However, living in this moneysick world provides me with the will to keep going my way ;-) ....talkin' about at least one positive note, hehe.

greets,

Ouch, you sound pretty depressed.

I think you've maybe been reading too many of +fravia's rants lately ? ;-)

Well, there are some serious personal issues that probably influence (time by time) my view on certain things.
And no I didn't read +Fravia docs lately, hehe. However, I think he has a good pint in many of his writings.

For those of you who havn't already done so.

Read Robert Anton Wilson, particularly the Illumantis Trilogy and the Schrodringers Cat trilogy.

Many methods of changing modern corporate life are in these books.

But best of all theyre also funny and full of sex & drugs.
