Subject: [LinuxDVD] Word from Creative Labs about DXR2

Basically i asked them what their position was releasing info to someone
who would write a linux driver using the framework at:
http://www.rpi.edu/~veliaa/linux-dvd/

The creative representative said that their hands were tied by the legal
agreements they made, and we would have to first join the linux consortium
for $5k, and then sign some NDA with C-Cube to get their specs.

So... how many of you would be willing to chip in some $$ to get a dvd
consortium license.

Actually first thing first, does anyone have a contact at C-Cube, i have
never gotten a response from them. (http://www.c-cube.com/)
