Here's an entertaining little development brought to you courtesy of Wired. It seems that the lawyers representing the DVD Copy Control Association submitted the source code for the DVD copy protection scheme as evidence, to show what they wanted people to stop distributing.
The problem is, they forgot to tell the judge it was confidential, so it got published as part of the court record. They corrected the problem a couple of days ago via an emergency hearing, but by that time over 21,000 people had downloaded it from one site alone.
This puts the attorneys in the unenviable position of filing a lawsuit to keep the code secret, then publicizing that very code as part of the lawsuit. Where's that Alanis Morissette chick when you need her? "It's like raaaaaaiiiinnnn on your wedding day...."
