Subject: [Livid-dev] About CSS decrypting - why don't you...

Hello out there,

I am new to this list, and with great interest I read about your progress on
CSS unlocking and decrypting.

There is one thing I don't understand: Why don't you take a look at the
existing software decoders that are available for Windows? I've got
installed 4 of them (XingDVD, WinDVD, Cinemaster engine, PowerDVD) and each
one is capable of playing every CSS encrypted DVD I own. In theory it should
be possible to take out the CSS decrypting code part and use it in the LiViD
project. Even copyright reasons hold you back from re-using the code, it
should help to learn a lot about the process.

Any comments about this?

Greetings from Munich,

Andreas

This is what has been done.

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM 
made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO v IBM.
