Quick links Here's a call for Sony to watch it's back, Microsoft is coming and only GNU/Linux can save them. As Microsoft swarms into the home electronics arena, Sony should be nervous, but they don't understand network economics and will continue shooting themselves in the foot (as they have done with PS2 and Aibo).

Also, a judge threw out the Felten case, deciding not to rule on 1)what the DMCA is and 2)whether or not it's unconstitutional. To be honest, the Felten lawsuit hinges on a coercive letter drafted by RIAA thugs in a moment of weakness, but a sympathetic judge could certainly ride a case on it. Eventually the DMCA will be tested for constitutionality, and probably thrown out (at least in part).
