Censorship is dead. Long live the revolution

Link: http://yro.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=07/05/01/1935250

Since I live in a country that, thus far, doesn't honour the DMCA, I'm free to say "09 F9 11 02 9D 74 E3 5B D8 41 56 C5 63 56 88 C0"

What's so significant about 16 pairs of hexadecimal digits? They're an encryption key for HD-DVD, and the MPAA are frantically issuing DMCA take-down notices, claiming that those digits are copyright. hmm, copyright on a bunch of numbers, eh? Fuck that for a game of cards.

Since the current game is to plaster those digits around the world, to demonstrate the futility of trying to censor anything online, especially not something which seeks to defeat a hated monopoly's throe of power, I figured I'd get in on the act too. And there they are. For those of you who missed them, those 16 bytes are: "09 F9 11 02 9D 74 E3 5B D8 41 56 C5 63 56 88 C0". I say again "zero nine, eff nine, one one, zero two, nine dee, seven four, ee three, five bee, dee eight, four one, five six, see five, six three, five six, eight eight, see zero".

Suck on that, MPAA fuckers

Shocking as it may be, I think, and sometimes those thoughts are almost worthy of public contemplation. So, here are those some thoughts, with no guarantees as to their validity, worth, or utility to the cosmos. All thoughts are my own, representing only my thoughts, opinions and positions, unless explicitly otherwise stated.
