Music Industry News - as it happens
Source: MusicDish - January 14, 2001

2600 Magazine has asked a US court to reverse an earlier ruling prohibiting publication of DeCSS code which allows DVD owners to watch DVDs on players that aren't approved by the US movie industry (see Norwegian government folds on DeCSS in this issue).

In November, a three-judge panel held that 2600 could be banned from publishing or linking to DeCSS, rejecting pleas from 46 intellectual property professors, 17 top computer scientists, 8 top computer security experts, the Association for Computing Machinery, the American Library Association, the ACLU, and the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, among many others.

"Free speech principles should turn not upon newly minted distinctions between pen-and-ink and point-and-click," says Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) counsel Kathleen M. Sullivan, who wants the full Second Circuit Court of Appeals to hear Universal v. Corley.

"By permitting publication of code in an online magazine, the Second Circuit would recognize that Internet speech is fully protected by the First Amendment as established by the U.S. Supreme Court in ACLU v. Reno," says EFF Legal Director Cindy Cohn.

A court decision on the request is expected later this spring.
