Appeals Court Rules on DVD Decryption Case

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on February 27, 2004

From an EFF press release this afternoon:

  • “A California appeals court today overturned a 1999 injunction against Andrew Bunner that prohibited him from distributing the DeCSS DVD decryption computer code, because the court found there was no evidence that DVD Content Scrambling System (CSS) technology was still a trade secret by the time that Bunner posted DeCSS code on his website.”
