"I wish to speak or
let the Muse announce through me
Tables of Numbers.

Professor Moglen!
Help defend my right to share
these numbers with you!

You called the right to
speak with PGP like that
to use Navaho.

Help me then in my
haiku quest to share these bits,
and not be censored.

Preserve my right to
speak here, in this extreme, these
mystery Tables

the products, pieces
of technique, which but a very
few will understand."

-- I hadn't seen this before. Genius! Pure, pure unadulterated genius! I'm really at a loss for words.

CSS ("Content Scrambling System") is an encryption system that most commercial DVDs use, and all DVD players need to understand. It's alleged purpose is to stop piracy, however it also enforces region coding, non-skippable FBI warnings or commercials and many other artificial restrictions.
