From Hixie, some info on the case against Jon Johansen, the kid who caused the DVD encryption debacle to make the international news:

It’s been reported all over the place, of course, but this week Oslo has seen the opening of the trial of Jon Lech Johansen, who, as far as I can tell, is accused of trying to watch a DVD that he had bought.

Yeah, we can’t have that. Whatever next. Someone who thinks it’s ok to buy a book and then read it?

He also includes a mega-cool illegal(?) link. Note to MPAA reps: that link is encoded. Decoding it could be punishable under the terms of the DMCA. Thpppbbbt!
