Friday the 13th. No triskaidekaphobia here.

Interesting coverage of the trial of a young man in Oslo, Norway, accused of writing DeCSS, software that will allow “non-authorized hardware” (like Linux computers) to read and play back DVDs. The articles are in english, but the surrounding text and advertisments, in the native tongue, are almost as intriguing.

Tim O’Reilly makes some great points about piracy, copying and shoplifting of books vs. legitimate peer-to-peer sharing in this article.
