Jon Lech Johansen won!
Remember Jon, the boy - or young man by now - who hacked his own DVD and then made the hack accessible online? He was charged by the Norwegian unit for economic crime, and faced the possibility of two years in prison. Yesterday, three years after it was discovered that he had written the program that let him view his own DVDs on his own computer, he was aquitted. The court ruled that there was no evidence against him, and that he had not comitted a crime.
