Out of the frying pan, into the fire

The author of DVD Decrypt, Lightning UK, has received a letter ordering him to cease development/support/etc relating to DVD Decrypt (the announcement). A “certain company” is behind it. People are guessing that it’s Sony, which would make sense, I guess. Anyway, I’m happy I’m out of the consumer electronics market where daft content providers are ruling at the moment. Unfortunately I’ve moved to a country where circumventing copy protection isn’t allowed (the same country where Lightning UK lives).
