Linux-Xbox, Anti-trust, Infosoc/EUCD/DMCA



Så kom den:
http://news.zdnet.co.uk/story/0,,t269-s2131594,00.html

The programmers who got Linux to run on Microsoft's gaming console now 
want the EC's antitrust body to head off a legal response.

Kort fortalt så har den vedtagne Infosoc, DMCA og EUCD lov gjort at 
det er ulovligt at udføre operationer på lovlig indkøbt hardware og 
software, som går uden om den adgangsbegrænsning der måtte være 
indbygget.

Disse love har så den sideeffekt, at forbrugerne ikke lovligt kan tage 
en Microsoft Xbox og installere Linux på den.

For tiden kan det lade sig gøre at installere en "mod chip" - noget 
hardware - som gør det muligt at køre Linux alligevel. Men at få lavet 
en løsning så det foregår i ren software er ikke mulig grundet 
lovgivningen. Microsoft truer iøvrigt dem der fremstiller "mod chips" 
med sagsanlæg.

Var det virkelig den situation danske, europæiske og amerikanske 
folkevalgte politikere ønskede at opnå? Vil de blot sige: Tjah, det 
var en uheldig sideeffekt, men det kan vi ikke gøre noget ved nu.
