Wired – Court to Address DeCSS T-Shirt

CSS (Content Scramble System) 是 DVD 上的 DRM 系統,由 DVD CCA 研發及管理,現在幾乎在市面所有的 DVD 上都有使用,旨在防止用戶複製 DVD。在 1999 年,綽號 DVD-Jon 的挪威青年破解了 CSS,並發佈了 DeCSS 程式,可以破解 CSS 系統,並引來了無數的訴訟。除了他本人之外,有其他支持 DeCSS 的行動亦引來官司,例如在衣服上印有 DeCSS 程式碼。

近日,歷史再度重演,HD-DVD 的 DRM 系統被破解,雖然散佈其破解碼有機會被控告,而且部份網站及網誌在張貼破解碼後收到警告信,但破解碼仍然不斷在互聯網廣泛流傳,並開始引發公民抗命反 DRM 的熱潮。有網民在開放式轉載網站 digg.com 貼出此破解碼,起初 digg.com 管理員因為 AACS 的要求將之移除 (AACS 管理 HD-DVD 防燒錄技術),但其實由於大量網民強烈反對,digg.com 決定維持該站開放編輯的精神,順應讀者的要求而參與公民抗命行動,令是次行動更受注目。該破解碼現在見於此 digg item,超過二萬個 digger 投票支持:

亦有人編成短曲,上載至 youtube:

以下為美國 Free Culture 組織成員發放的電郵,呼籲網民參與是次公民抗命:

Communique from Comrade Ringo Kamens:

As many of you know, the MAFIAA and DVDCCA has been chasing after people for distributing copies of DeCSS for years and is still issuing cease and desist letters. With the release of HDDVD and Blue Ray they again attempted to use DRM to restrict our rights and failed. It was cracked fairly quickly and one of our fellow comrades recovered a decryption key to use on these videos. Because of the work of these brave brothers and sisters around the world, your fair use rights have been restored (although you can’t legally exercise them on DRMed content). Almost immediately, the “intellectual property" owners started their own cease and desist campaign to censor this valuable key:
09 F9 11 02 9D 74 E3 5B D8 41 56 C5 63 56 88 C0

That key can decrypt your movies so you can exercise your fair use rights. Please distribute it as far and widely as possible. By posting to these mailing lists, I have probably put it into a few hundred mail boxes. What can you do? Write it on a wall, sticker it on your computer, draw it in the sand. Host it on your site, whatever you do, GET IT OUT THERE. if you put the key online and receive a Cease and Desist letter it is up to you what you want to do. You may resist and
probably face a small risk of lawsuit but if you immediately remove the content you will negate all that risk. While they still reserve the right to sue or jail you, nobody has ever had that action taken against them even when doing obvious acts of civil disobedience. If you take it down, please send the C+D letter to chillingeffects.org and forward it (headers and all) to 2600denver@gmail.com for legal and historical reference. –We need to document this oppression so we can fight it.– Again, please distribute this key as far and wide as possible. Put it in a song, send a letter to the editor of your newspaper, etc. Thousands of your comrades online are already distributing the key online. The key reached the front page of digg twice (after being censored both times), reached the front page of slashdot, reached the front page on reddit, and it already being widely circulated. We need to keep up the circulation and keep fighting this was until we win. Our comrades broke the encryption, now do your duty and defend your rights. These brave souls have thrown the first stone, don’t let them die alone!

Yes, I’m asking you to break the law

Comrade Ringo Kamens

P.S. Would anybody be interested in stickers? I would be willing to buy in
bulk and can easily find homes for 100-200 of them. I will not give up
until this issue is won and I think by stickering things, we are
creating a permanent way to resist. Stickers would be about .50 to .75
US and you could have to do a minimum order of 20. I would buy a big
bulk order and then ship them out to anybody who wanted them. Of
course, they would have the HD-DVD code printed right on them.

Ok, now stop reading and start acting!

    坦白說﹐對於 KR 的勇氣﹐我雖感到配服﹐但並不支持這整個行動。也許一次成功或壯烈失敗的抗爭﹐足以喚醒大眾扳回知資共享的權力﹐而業界亦實在從沒成功地阻止到破解。不過這次勝利﹐事實上是以技術爆破開局﹐而後以民粹主義作為中盤。

    無論版權持有人面對多大的損失﹐都不是 Digg 的死命一搏所構成的﹐而 Digg 卻因為宣告行動﹐在法律層面下成為眾矢之的。鄉民的責任﹐在美國精神底下怎體現﹐我不想以境外看戲的人的心態加以肘度。我比較在意﹐大家若覺得這事值得興奮﹐有沒有意識到我們要付出甚麼﹐或已付出了甚麼。


  6. […] 對於這件事﹐我已在中大的知識產權關注小組回覆了﹐只是打錯了不少字﹐這裏留一份資以得閒修正: 這絕對是鄉民暴動﹐只是事情發生在美國﹐或多或少會衍生出有效的募捐、法律事務組織活動。這些事務才是值得關注和學習的。 […]
