When someone abuses a gun, gun makers aren't dragged into court, the person that abused it is. Just because a tool _can_ be used to do something illegal, should the tool itself be illegal? |
I'm sure everyone here knows what DeCSS' purpose is, decryption of DVDs, but just because a step you can take afterwards is copying the DVD, it doesn't have to be. I don't know the kid. He could have intended to copy movies for all I know, but if he maintains that he did it just because he wanted watch DVDs and the decryption is a necessary part of that, why is that so hard for the courts to accept?
