Subject: DVD lawyers make "trade secret" public

Lawyers representing the DVD industry got caught in an embarrassing gaffe
when they filed a lawsuit [against a Norwegian *ager and his father] and
accidentally publicized the computer code they wanted to keep secret.  The
DVD Copy Control Association included its "trade secret" source code in
court documents, but forgot to ask the judge to seal them from public
scrutiny.  Whoops.

In a hastily arranged hearing Wednesday morning, DVD CCA lawyers asked Santa
Clara Superior Court Judge William J. Elfving to correct their oversight,
and he agreed to keep the document confidential.

It may be a little late. The document is dated 13 Jan 2000 and is widely
available on the Web.  The owner of one site that placed the 140KB
declaration on-line says over 21,000 people have downloaded it so far.  [...]

1. DVD SCSI burner, I want DVD+RW, DVD-RW, DVD-RAM

I've googled until I'm blue (would that be bluegled?) and I can't
find a DVD burner that has all of what I want.  These seem to be
what people like for Linux:


NEC ND1100A DVD+RW/+R, DVD-R, CD-R/-RW (replaces above Ricoh)

HP DVD300i (DVD+RW/+R, CD-R/-RW)
(watch the line wrap)


All of the above units are EIDE.  Is there a SCSI DVD burner that
works with Linux?  My reason for wanting this is the wonderful
burning throughput I get with my SCSI CD burner.  I *NEVER* have
buffer underruns no matter how much else my system is doing.
I can even backup to my SCSI tape at the same time without
problems.  I'm nervous that an IDE burner will force me into
buffer underrun land.


Unless otherwise noted, the statements herein reflect my personal
opinions and not those of any organization with which I may be affiliated.
