This is a good overview article describing the current intellectual property
battlefield. Hidden within, however, is a sentence that shows how things
will turn out in the end: "The studios say the software, written by a
Norwegian teenager, is a piracy tool."

When a Norwegian teenager on the Internet can hack something (like the
pathetic DVD copy protection scheme), no US-based law is going to stop them.
