I just read an interview with this guy and he said it was actually a german hacker who really cracked the code, but the media, stupid as they are, wanted him to be the guilty one, because it generates more profits if you tell the audience that a teenager cracked the code. this corresponds to the usual cliches people have about crackers and hackers - you know, like in that stupid Hackers movie with Angelina Jolie. Anyway, the guy was pretty stupid to reveal his identity. He cracked the code with 2 other guys, and when they discussed the issue of anonymity, the others told him, "yeah, go for it, reveal your identity", but they themselves remained in the dark. and the result is that now this guy is phucked and his parents are phucked, because the domain on which he spread his programme belongs to his father, while the other two guys sit at home, one in germany, the other hell know where and laugh their asses off. This whole protection system on dvds gets on my nerves, sure, but that's how it is, and one shouldn't boast that one has cracked it. After all, when I bought my realmagic decoder or when I rent dvds, I don't tell the people, "I buy/rent this to make an illegal copy". Just do your stuff, but stay under the surface. They should have released the programme under their IRC nicknames, which they used in the public, not under the real name. Don't phuck with daddy, eh, I mean with the governments, or if you do try to phuck them, just make sure that they can't take a look at your identity card/passport.
