Response to: Lessig's argument is flawed

Ok, you those are some good points, but we have a problem. Felten cracked the SMDI. That is research which will promote stronger tools for the industry. The industry is scared of these smart people because they cost them money. If DRM is easily crackable people in other places may end up making copies. Sklyarov and Felten are engaged in security research and should be thanked. I know that gpg/pgp is strong because it has been attacked.


This is a much larger issue at stake.
