Remember last week’s kerfuffle over whether the movie industry could own random 128-bit numbers? [...]

Now, thanks to our newly developed VirtualLandGrab technology, you can own a 128-bit integer of your very own.

Here’s how we do it. First, we generate a fresh pseudorandom integer, just for you. Then we use your integer to encrypt a copyrighted haiku, thereby transforming your integer into a circumvention device capable of decrypting the haiku without your permission. We then give you all of our rights to decrypt the haiku using your integer. The DMCA does the rest. [...]

As of 11:35 CST (US), the website is apparently down.
DNS converted to IP (64.111.105.191) also does not work.
