The Register meldt dat de DVD Copy Control Association actie heeft ondernomen tegen sites die het DeCSS proggie verspreiden. Met dit stuk zachtwaar kunnen DVD films, buiten de DVD copy protection om, naar de harddisk gepassed worden en dat is iets waar de filmindustrie niet echt gelukkig van wordt:
The move, which targets 72 US-based DeCSS-hosting sites follows actions launched in Europe earlier this month against other Web sites from which the utility could be downloaded.
The US suit was filed on Monday by the DVD Copy Control Association (DCCA), a body that appears to have been formed specifically to act against the distribution of DeCSS. Previous anti-DeCSS actions have been made on behalf of the Motion Picture Association of America. The latest suit demands the removal of DeCSS from the named sites, but the DCCA is also seeking a broader restraint to prevent sites from linking to servers on which the utility is stored.
