An idiot's reaction (SunnComm's reaction)
You know, it's possible the DMCA, givin how reactionary that legislation is, actually supports this lawsuit, but it really strikes me as unjust. The Princeton student who exposed the latest attempt by the RIAA to prevent people from ripping their new cd with their computer (obviously fair use) is being sued by the pathetically impotent company (SunnComm) that wrote the anti-copying software protection. SunnComm claims to have lost $10 million dollars in value since he told the world that their software didn't work. Can you imagine similar suits in other industries? Consumer Reports says that the new Ford tested poorly, so people are less likely to buy the new Ford, so Ford sues Consumer Reports? Sorry guys, you're software sucks. Don't sue the messenger.
