'Domnevni' stvaritelj DeCSS na sodišču

'Domnevni' stvaritelj DeCSS na sodišču

Reuters - Danes se je na švedskem sodišču zagovarjal Jon Johansen, 'domnevni' Razbitelj™ DVD zaščite: nedolžen.

Sojenje naj bi trajalo pet dni, tožilec Inger Marie Sunde pa je primer označil kot boj med 15- in 16-letnim Davidom proti velikanom ameriške industrije -- a kljub temu je bil boj nezakonit. Mladeniču grozita dve leti zapora oz. plačilo denarne kazni.

Sicer pa danes 19-letni mladenič kot programer zasluži $4.851 mesečno ...

Primoz? [>:D]

From a text file that came with DeCSS (I'm at the cap, don't worry):

- The Truth about DVD CSS cracking by MoRE and [dEZZY/DoD] -

Date: 4th of November 1999.

By: [dEZZY/DoD], [MultiAGP & German dood of MoRE]

This document is written cooperatively by the two groups

that independently and simultaneously cracked the DVD Content

Scrambling System, in order to straighten out mass media


DoD -> Drink or Die: "warez bearz from Russia and Beyond"

MoRE -> Masters of Reverse Engineering

[dEZZY/DoD] alone is the author of DoD DVD Speed Ripper.

MoRE is a new group and they are the authors of DeCSS.

Lately, Jon Johansen of MoRE has been pretty much all over

the news in Norway, though he had NOTHING to do with the actual

cracking of the DVD CSS protection. Yes, it was MoRE who did

DeCSS, but the actual crack was not a team effort, MoRE didn't

even exist back when the anonymous German (who is now a MoRE

member) cracked it...

Most of the papers chose a headline very similar to this:

"15-year old Norwegian cracked the DVD-code".

They probably did this because they wanted to make a big

Norwegian "Wooohoooo" out of it. This was also pretty much

the contents of the TV show "Vestfold-sendingen" where they

brought up matters from Vestfold, Norway where Jon Johansen


In most newspapers they vagely included the name MoRE, and

that DeCSS was a team effort, but neither MoRE nor DoD liked

the headlines. Jon's comment on this matter is:

"I never told the media that I had cracked the dvd encryption.

What I told them, was that we (MoRE) had made an app called

DeCSS which would decrypt dvd movies and let them be played

off your hd, or off dvdrs if you have a dvd burner. I always

used _we_ and _MoRE_ when talking to them. I never said anything

about me or my position in the group.

Now that the storm is over, I see that all they were after,

was to get a big story. They even included some of "my" quotes,

which I never said. When media starts making up stuff, it's really

sad. I know that this has been done before in Norwegian media,

regarding the cooperation between a computer group at my school

and the school people in charge of the network. All I can say is

that I'm very sorry that the media twisted my words, and even lied,

to make it appear as I had done the cracking myself. I'm pretty

sure that I will do everything to avoid the media in the future,

but if I'm forced to talk with them, I'll have to get them to

sign an agreement. Again, I apologize on the behalf of Norwegian

press, and I hope that this document will make everything clear.

The truth shall set you free."

DoD DVD Speed Ripper was developed by [dEZZY/DoD] at the

same time as DeCSS. The first release of DoD's app (which

came out a couple of weeks before the first release of DeCSS)

did not work with all (WB) titles, like The Matrix. This was

known by [dEZZY/DoD] at the time of his release. MoRE decided

to wait until they could fix this. In short time, [dEZZY/DoD]

solved the problem and MoRE's top coder/disassembler from

Germany used that information to get DeCSS working with every

movie before they released it, along with a GUI. DeCSS was then

the first application which decrypted ALL dvd titles, since DoD

had not released a new version to the public. How MoRE got

their hands on the information by [dEZZY/DoD], seems to have

something to do with the Linux community...

Why Drink or Die didn't want to release a new version so soon,

was because warez sites nuke programs that are too close in

release (minimum 2-3 weeks). Meanwhile when DeCSS came out, it

caused DoD to delay any Windows release until a GUI version of

their Speed Ripper was done. However, they released a Linux

version of their ripper late October 1999. As for the new Windows

version of the Speed Ripper, [dEZZY/DoD] has been very busy with

his education and hence the ripper is extremely delayed.

[dEZZY/DoD] already got the idea of reverse engineering a DVD

player for the CSS code back in late summer 1998. He was not able

to do it at the time since he did not have access to a DVDROM. In

the beginning of 1999, MoRE's German member also got the idea.

[dEZZY/DoD] and MoRE's German member got CSS decryption code

working at the same time (middle of September 1999), without

having shared info (although they knew about each other). After

[dEZZY/DoD] solved "the problem", MoRE's German member, as stated

above, implemented these changes and added them to DeCSS for


Before DeCSS was developed and released, MoRE had already sent

the source for the decryption to their contact in the Linux DVD

community, Derek Fawcus . This is the reason

why one of Wired's news reporters was put on the case.

[dEZZY/DoD] also had relations in the Linux DVD community (who

does not want to be mentioned), but decided not to release the

source code publicly (at least not for the moment).

Enjoy the software!
