Judge Kaplan's MPAA vs. DeCSS Decision DVD & DeCSS8/17/2000; 2:36:40 PM Judge Kaplan has ruled in favor of the MPAA in the DeCSS case. This is not a surprise, and opens the door for the inevitable appeal and show-down in a higher court.The high-rated Slashdot comments seem fairly insightful. I agree with many of them; the judge seems to have ruled completely within the bound of the DMCA, and basically dodged the issue of whether the DMCA is constitutional.You'll be hearing more from this suit, I'm sure.
