This debate occured in the cryptography world a few years ago. It won then, and it looks like it’s winning now.

Kewl!! Best news in a LOOONG time :d Go EFF!!

So… According to the U.S. government, DVD Decoder Software is terrorware. It has a high potential for causing harm, and, as such, should be banned. That’s fine with me, but let’s not forget, then, that guns are terrorware. They have a high potential for causing harm, and, as such, should be banned. Why is it that I think that the same people who agree to the statement about DVD Decoder Software, will vehemently disagree to the same statement about guns? Is DVD Decoder Software really so much more harmful than guns? Get real! And, by the way, keeping September 11th in mind, airplanes are terrorware. They have a high potential for causing harm, and, as such, should be banned, right? Let’s face it: these bastards don’t give a damn about any harm that may be caused. The only thing that they care about is TOTAL CONTROL, and whether that’s lawful or unlawful, moral or immoral, is totally and utterly irrelevant (to them, I mean). In fact, in that regard, they are identical to the taliban in Afghanistan!

YYYYEEESSSSS…:4 Way to go 2600!
