Investment Protection or Theft?

NPR's Rick Karr reports opening arguments are expected today in the federal trial of Eric Corley, publisher of the hacker magazine Twenty-Six Hundred. The prosecution charges Corley broke the law when he posted a program on his website that allows users to unscramble the codes used to encrypt DVD's. The defense claims Corley never broke the law, since posting the program is not inherently illegal.
