I'm sorry, what?


Recommended Posts

Reminds me of this:

Maybe I should start writing my tutorials like this: "Please do NOT place a breakpoint at 00401305, because that would be the OEP, and we most certainly DON'T want to go there BECAUSE THAT WOULD BE ILLEGAL".

What's the deal with all the lock picking tools? They're all legal, mind you.

You can pull out the same argument here... what if I lost my password and need to hack back into my own software cc_confused.gif

In general, most politicians don't seem to be aware that cause != effect.

@Killboy: depends very much on the state where you're in. In some states you'll get a fine, in some states only licensed locksmiths are allowed to own them (see: http://en.wikipedia....ng#Legal_status)

The proposal also targets tools used to commit offences: the production or sale of devices such as computer programs designed for cyber-attacks, or which find a computer password by which an information system can be accessed, would constitute criminal offences.
