ESR on DeCSS and Napster

Eric S. Raymond: Two faces and Big Lies -- "DeCSS. Napster. These are two faces of a revolution -- a
technological wave that is sweeping through the media industry,
theatening to upset billion-dollar business models as though they were
cockleshell boats. As with every power shift in progress, these
technologies have attracted vocal partisans and bitter enemies.

Also as usual, the first casualty of ideological warfare is the truth."

A great read.
