Magazine seeks review of DeCSS ruling

The editor of hacker publication 2600 is asking the full 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York to review an earlier decision prohibiting the magazine from linking to or posting DeCSS--code that can be used to crack DVD security. In November, a three-judge panel of the court sided with the movie industry, which had sued the publication, saying the posting of DeCSS would lead to rampant piracy. The court is expected to decide whether to review that decision sometime in the spring.
