DVD CCA Applies for Restraining Order

Written by Jari Ketola @ 28 Dec 1999 0:55

Below is an excerpt from an e-mail received by Slashdot.org from Robert Jones (Devzero.org):
"I have just received an email which I think will be of interest to many Slashdotters. Apparently, the DVD CCA [Copyright Control Association] has applied for a restraining order against myself and approximately 70 others to keep us from distributing 'any proprietary property or trade secrets relating to the CSS technology'. The hearing will be at 'the Superior Court of Santa Clara County, State of California, on December 29, 1999, at 8:30 a.m.' This will probably result in the bastards silencing us, but what can you do? If this goes through, I will never purchase a DVD player using current technology." Related links:
