Submission + - Can You Be Sued for Helping Clients Rip DVDs?

In one of the stories, EFF Attorney Fred von Lohmann discusses the potential liability of those who resell or install DVD-ripping machines (the courts have yet to rule). Another article provides a rather amusing look at how manufacturers justify the legality of their products. Here's one example: "We are just like Microsoft Vista that does not have a CSS [Content Scramble System] license."
