Judge rules against Web site
that helps users copy DVDs
■ Courtfinds site violated
copyright infringement laws.
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEWYORK—A federal judge
backed the movie industry
Thursday in its battle to stop
DVDs from being copied on
The ruling came in a case
brought by eight Hollywood
movie studios that sued to stop a
Web site from providing or link
ing visitors to software that
descrambles the code meant to
prevent DVDs from being copied.
U.S. District Judge Lewis A.
Kaplan ruled that the posting of
the code violates federal copy
The ruling was a loss for Eric
Corley, who had already been
forced by a preliminary injunc
tion to remove the DeCSS code
from his www.2600.com Web
The software, developed by
hackers, helps computer users
copy full-length movies from dig
ital versatile discs onto their hard
drives or other media.
Kaplan rejected a defense
argument made during the trial
last month that computer code is
a form of expression protected by
the First Amendment.
“Computer code is not purely
expressive any more than the
assassination of a political figure
is purely a political statement,”
Leon Gold, a lawyer for the
Motion Picture Association of
America, said the organization
was delighted with the ruling.
“It establishes once again
that you cannot take anyone’s
copyrighted work without per
mission,” he said. “The Internet
hasn't withered the strong arm of
Jack Valenti, president of the
MPAA, called Kaplan’s decision
the “stoutest defense of the sanc
tity of copyright that I’ve ever
Martin Garbus, a lawyer for
Corley, said: “We understood that
this was an issue that has to be
resolved by the Supreme Court.
again that you cannot
take anyone i copy
righted work without
lawyer for the Motion Picture
Association of America
The judge’s First Amendment
analysis is wrong.’’
In addition to the 90-page
ruling, Kaplan issued a finding
that the posting of the DeCSS
code violated the Digital
Millennium Copyright Act, a
1998 law aimed at controlling
software piracy and the posting
of copyrighted material on Web
“We always felt this was
exactly the case the statute was
written for,” Gold said. ”If the
court had failed to file an injunc
tion, we didn't think there would
be anything left of the statute.”

Documentary lets audiences view
a different side of the Sex Pistols
Never mind the bollocks,
here comes one of the best films
of the year.
As I sat completely enthralled
in the theater, watching one of
the original bands (if not the orig
inal) of gut wrenching punk rock,
for the 80th time I wished I was
bom a Brit
Everything seems so much
cooler in the UK, and I’m not
talkin’ ’bout the weather.
• “The Filth and the Fury" is a
Sex Pistols documentary from
filmmaker Julien Temple.
It is a wonderful conglomera
tion of old movie clips, concert
footage and news reports as well
as interviews with the living band
Temple opens the film with
pictures of the boys when they
were young tikes - without the
safety pins in the ears or on their
And they were all sporting
clean cut hair.
But, as the music in the back
ground foreshadows, these boys
weren’t bom to be dean cut They
were bom to rock. Dirty style. A
shower would have killed lead
singer Johnny Rotten’s soul along
with his marry germs.
I’m quite a fan of documen
taries, no matter how boring or
mundane they may seem (After
all, no one’s life is as interesting as
someone else’s.), but this one
goes beyond the call of duty.
Done in a style that comple
ments the music quite weU, there
is also a fiery British comedic
edge to the video clips Temple
There is a great twist to a
photo of the Queen when the
Pistols are in concert playing
“God Save the Queen." Temple
weaves concert shots with a still
of the Queen in an adoring pose.
It’s up to the audience to decide if
it’s an all out assault on the
Queen or if it’s, in some odd way,
praising her for being Britain's
At other times, the audience
is inundated with scenes from
Shakespeare’s “Richard III” as a
narrator hints at a comparison
betwixt Johnny Rotten’s voice
(being strangely demonic) and
composure (slightly deformed)
to that of Richard in.
As if all of these dips weren’t
enough. Ttemple wants to stay the
course and continue to take the
audience down memory lane. We
are let into the clubs where the
Pistols used to play, and there see
the likes of Billy Idol, Siouxsie
Sioux, Shane MacGowan of the
Pogues and Sting (in a film clip
from their flop movie "They
To get to die point of the Sex
Pistols as a band is to take this
journey yourself. Watch this film
and see how it inspires you. For
me, I didn't see a self-mutilating

I saw a group of anti-con

sell out so as not to disappoint
their fans or themselves.
