My euroDMCA article is bringing in interest.

Spent some time on the phone to journalists today in connection with the court case tomorrow. Someone who made a Playstation mod chip is being sued by Sony under the old-style anticircumvention laws the UK put on the books in 1988, long before DMCA.

If you want to attend the court, just to say you were there at the first anticircumvention case in England, then you want the High Court in London, at 9am. The plaintiffs are various parts of Sony Corporation. Wear blazer and tie or suit and tie.

Scarily, the poor chap would be innocent under the DMCA or the European Copyright Directive (EUCD / euroDMCA).

Have to get that article about circumvention rolling.
