Now you too can be a member of the Content Cartels and use the DMCA to crush your enemies. Ed Felten has written a script that generates a 128-bit encryption key for a haiku he wrote, and therefore owns the copyright on. Running the script on the web page also transfers the legal right to decrypt the copyrighted work using your key. This is essentially the same process that allows you to play a copy protected movie in a DVD player.
Now, it's currently being argued by the people who make such things for movies and DVD players that any such number used in any way whatsoever by anyone other than the owner of the rights to that work is a federal crime and/or an act of international piracy. The legal rights holder owns that number. If anyone else so much as writes it on a slip of paper they are then in possession of an illegal copyright protection circumvention device.
So from now until this fucking ridiculous law is overturned the integer C8 BD 2C D1 3E C3 65 10 FD CE 00 1F 23 6A E7 28 is as illegal as a cable television descrambler. Everyone except me must exercise due diligence in not using this number for any reason, especially computer calculations, or your ass is going to jail.
And if none of this makes any sense, congratulations. You're perfectly sane.
