Tim Bray from ongoing points to an essay by esr on Suicidalism, Tim criticizes the essay and qualifies esr as nut. I, for one, do not agree. I think esr has a point with that essay. A point brought forth by the Saudi Arabian women telling the US envoy, they are not oppressed, they are happy as they are, they don't want to drive. If there were a country were not a single woman wanted to drive, that would be fine with me, but that country wouldn't need a law forbidding women to drive, would it? The flaw in the Arabian women argument is the lack of choice. If one woman wanted to drive, even just one, she should be able to. That's the content of freedom. Not imposing your own decisions on someone else. Chavez has used Suicidalism quite effectively in Venezuela...

With the bunch of copy-protected pseudo-CDs spreading around with Microsoft crummy technology I got a legal question. The DCMA would make it illegal to beat the encryption in the things, a Windows user can get protected wma files, which iTunes for Windows can't play, a Mac or Linux user can't get squat. Would it be legal, under the home recording act, to buy that lobotomized CD and then head to the pirate network to obtain a real copy of what you wanted in the first place? It seems to me you own the content and you are using it legally, didn't break encription or did anything... What say you, any readers with a law degree?
