01.15.00 MPAA FILES NEW DVD LAWSUIT AGAINST 2600
Never willing to leave good enough alone - the MPAA is seeking damages and injunctive relief against 2600 and others under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

01.21.00 2600 WEBSITE HIT WITH INJUNCTION
Today would have been a very happy day for us here at 2600. After nearly five years in prison, this is the day that Kevin Mitnick is finally being released. Ironically, that development is overshadowed by a very immediate threat to 2600, the hacker community, and people who value freedom everywhere.

01.25.00 FATHER AND SON ARRESTED
Norwegian teenager Jon Johansen has been raided because of his alleged involvment in reverse engineering CSS. Whether or not the reverse engineering was "improper" under Norwegian criminal law was the subject of much debate at the DVD CCA's January 18th court hearing in San Jose, California.

01.26.00 KEVIN FREE
For the past five years, Kevin Mitnick has been imprisoned. That means he hasn't been able to do a lot of things we all take for granted. He hasn't seen a movie, listened to a CD, read books and magazines... the list goes on into infinity. Now, Kevin is free, although still facing a huge amount of restrictions. He cannot use a computer, a cellular phone, and many other forms of technology. He isn't even allowed to go on a speaking tour to tell his story, since that would involve "profiting from his crimes."

01.28.00 YET ANOTHER MOTION FILED
This time they want to outlaw any LINKS to the DeCSS code. If they succeed in doing this, we will LIST the sites that have the source code instead. If they manage to outlaw lists, we promise to think of something else. Suggestions are welcome.

01.30.00 CALL TO ACTION
2600 meetings around the world are called upon to help spread the word about the DVD lawsuits by distributing flyers at local movie theaters this Friday, February 4th.
