I ran into one of those Internet changing events last night.
bq.Digg.com users, very upset at the news aggregate site for deleting articles containing an encryption key that could be used to crack the digital rights management on HD DVDs, have inundated the site with thousands of recommendations to pages that contain the code. The protest was apparently heard by Digg administrators, who later reversed the ban. – “Steven Musil(Unhappy Digg users bury site in protest)”:http://news.com.com/8301-10784_3-9714898-7.html?part=rss&subj=news&tag=2547-1_3-0-20 If you have never seen the film “Antitrust(Antitrust)”:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0218817/, there is a similar scene in the film. And just as in that scene, once information gets out on the Internet”, there is very little that can stop it. And you would think that the existence of things like the “Gallery of CSS Descramblers(Gallery of CSS Descramblers)”:http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~dst/DeCSS/Gallery/ would have made things clear that “their attempts(AACS licensor complains of posted key)”:http://www.chillingeffects.org/notice.cgi?sID=03218 to supress things just won’t work. But the question is, should Digg be let off the hook?
bq.I suggested a couple of times that Digg was operating out of fear, and not out of legal requirement, based on the fact that Reddit still has the key up, and Wired published an article on Feb 13, 2007, with the key, and that is still up. I used no foul language at any time. My account has been disabled for misuse. – “Nougat( How I got banned from Digg)”:http://www.cjmillisock.com/2007/05/how-i-got-banned-from-digg.html#980204782337944033 Removing the posts was one thing. Disabling accounts was much worse. I am perfectly willing to forgive, but I think “Kevin Rose(http://blog.digg.com/?p=74)”:http://blog.digg.com/?p=74 and his fellows need to meet everyone more than halfway.
