Content Scrambling System (CSS) "ineffective"

- "According to the court, CSS (the DRM on DVDs) no longer achieves its protection objective. The court relied on two expert witnesses and said that "since a Norwegian hacker succeeded in circumventing CSS protection used in DVDs in 1999, end-users have been able to get with ease tens of similar circumventing software from the Internet even free of charge. Some operating systems come with this kind of software pre-installed." Thus, the court concluded that "CSS protection can no longer be held 'effective' as defined in law.""

So I hope this means that Hollywood will stop picking on Canada for being the supposed leader in movie piracy and start picking on Finland now.
