DeCSS trial ends in Norway The trial against Jon Lech Johansen, the author of DeCSS, closed today in the Oslo Appeals Court. The prosecutors are demanding a 90-day suspended jail sentence and a fine of NOK 20,000 (about $3,000) to cover legal expenses. Johansen's lawyer in turn demanded that Johansen be acquited of all charges.
Johansen was cleared of all charges in January, but was immediately sued again, when the Norwegian economics crime division appealed the ruling.

A final verdict from the Appeals Court is due on December 22nd. Both sides can still file a new appeal to the Supreme Court, should they wish to do so.

The MPAA must be promising virgins in the afterlife to those who do it's bidding...

We mustn't lower ourselves to the level of those we loathe, lest we become loathsome ourselves.
