Felten, an associate professor computer science at Princeton , is perhaps best known for his role in the Microsoft antitrust trial. During the trial, where he demonstrated a program that he said stripped the Internet Explorer browser from the Windows operating system, he spent hours explaining what he had done and how he had done it.'But the professor has been far less forthcoming about a more recent hack, and at a conference last week he explained why: Lawyers have advised him that publicizing the details of his tinkering could violate a 1998 federal law called the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.'Academic freedom, or protecting the interests of corporations... that's an easy choice for politician$, isn't it?
