Alan Cox Resigns USENIX Post Over DMCA Arrest

his position on the USENIX ALS committee in protest of Dimitry Sklyarov's
arrest in Las Vegas. He is also urging non-US programmers to boycott
American computing conferences until the DMCA is overturned." Boy, aren't
you glad that the DMCA now has nine special units to prosecute hacking and
copyright violations? At least it will help keep the country safe from
programmers. Update: 07/22 01:05 AM by T: Yup, it's a dupe. Mea culpa -- I
missed it the first time. Worth dwelling on, though ;)
