Wow. The firm that invented the (idiotic) DRM system that got shift-hacked are gonna sue the kid that discovered the hack, under, what else, the DMCA.
From a strategic point of view, this is the STUPIDEST MOVE POSSIBLE.
Note to Sunncomm: don't legislate, innovate. You got hacked because your product sucked
. Is that true? No, actually, you got hacked because your strategy sucked
. You're playing the wrong game. If you wanna compete with Macrovision, you have to out-innovate them - there's no other way. The market won't think your tech is any better just because the kid that hacked it is bankrupt.
the inquirer is reporting that Sunncomm has backed down.
