DVD makers seek legal solution to tech problem

In case you missed this one, check out News.com's story about an entertainment business coalition suing 71 different indviduals and web sites in an attempt to put the proverbial cat back into the bag. They're trying to stop distribution of DeCSS, a simple little program that defeats DVD encryption, allowing PC users to make digital copies of DVD movies, etc.

Uhh, good luck with that guys. Nice approach. Shouldn't be hard to stop distribution of a cracking program over the Internet. Right?
