MIT’s The Tech newspaper recently sat down with Motion Picture Association of America head Jack Valenti for an interview about digital rights. The writer, a MIT engineering student, probes (perhaps a bit too tenaciously) the bad side of the DMCA, namely DVD encryption and playback on Linux, which is currently illegal. In the end it’s a nice short piece on two opposing viewpoints coming together and trying to see each other’s point of view, something that’s often lacking in digital rights debates.Posted 29 April 2004
