Congratulations to the EFF on this victory for digital liberty. We mustn’t over-state the victory, however. The DMCA is still an unnecessarily broad act that chills innovation and liberty for Americans and sets a norm that endangers digital liberty worldwide. Moreover, the acts they have caused to be decriminalised are still covered contractually by the ridiculous terms applied to customers. So the fight for digital liberty is far from over.
Carl has personally catalysed more change than most organisations can manage collectively and I am sure is one of the heroes of the internet revolution.
