EFF: Hollywood Gets Norway to Try Jon Johansen Three Years Later

Electronic Frontier Foundation: “The criminal trial against Jon Johansen, a Norwegian teenager who watched his DVDs on his Linux computer using a DVD descrambling program called DeCSS, will start in Norway this Monday, December 9. [–––] Johansen’s prosecution marks the first time the Norwegian government has attempted to punish individuals for accessing their own property. Previously, the government used this law only to prosecute those who violated someone else’s secure system, like a bank or telephone company system, in order to obtain another person’s records.” (Via Cory Doctorow.)
