I sometimes wonder why the lawyers for the good guys pick and choose so much. I'd really like someone to slam Sony for this one!
Paraphrasing a joke, "when ever you are laughing hysterically, if you play "straight man" there's a lawsuit."
So, what is the unholy child of the Computer Intrusion Act (or whatever it's called) about the books about hacking ... mashed with modern "you owe us moneyz" copyright law?
"Oh look, we're worried that you might copy our films, so we'll install rootkits on your computer, and then ...uh ... copy books about ... hacking!"
Hehe what lawyer was drunk in the meeting when he had to say that? : )
