This is news cast 99.
Don’t forget my second anniversary is coming up. If you have show IDs or any other audio to share, I’ll be compiling everything for the June 20th feature cast.
I also wanted to take a second to apologize for those who found the compression and normalization not good enough on the copyright panel. Short story is I just did not give myself enough time with the audio before publishing it. If I get a chance, I will try to improve and repost the audio. I will definitely try harder with the other panel whose audio I want to share.
In this week’s news, while I already wrote about the update to iTunes that delivers the DRM-free goods there are some tarnished linings especially the large chunk of unidentified encoded data and the breaking of the buy-burn-rip loophole though the latter may be a bug. Also a Summer of Code Project wants to bring Linux like package management to Windows, Germany declares hacking tools illegal, and a Finnish court rules cracking CSS is legal with Professor Felten’s view on the legal definition of effective in regards to DRM.
Following up this week, the new AACS processing key is already leaked with a fascinating story as to how and the Choicepoint saga ends with a settlement with the state’s AGs.
