TR regular Thresher wrote in to let me know that a Norwegian appeals court has cleared DVD Jon of piracy charges. DVD Jon is responsible for releasing DeCSS, a program capable of breaking DVD encryption. While DeCSS is probably a textbook violation of America's DMCA, the Norwegian court ruled that DVD Jon is free to crack the encryption on DVDs he purchases legally.
Norway's Economic Crime Unit has apparently been prosecuting the case on behalf of the MPAA. They now have the option of taking the case to Norway's Supreme Court, though it's unclear whether a second appeal is in the works.
