Judge Dismisses DMCA Challenge

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on April 10, 2003

U.S. District Judge Richard G. Stearns (MA) dismissed a lawsuit by the ACLU on behalf of Harvard law student and cyber-activist Ben Edelman who argued a first amendment right to create software to decrypt an Internet blocking program by N2H2. The filtering software, used by public and school libraries, is marketed as “CIPA compliant.” Edelman posted a copy of the decision here, and for reference, also see his Edelman v. N2H2, Inc. – Case Summary & Documents site. The Washington Post also reported on this case here.
