カール ヒューイットが語る IP ソフトウェアの未来

I think you guys will want to see this extraordinarily interesting talk by Carl Hewitt on YouTube. He talks about the future of IP software -- future as in when computers start filing patent applications. "If there is no principled way to distinguish computation from human thinking" -- then what? Human thinking isn't patentable. And...

第2のセキュリティ研究家グループが Auernheimer を支援するアミカス意見書を提出 ~pj

Orin Kerr now lists four amicus briefs filed in the Andrew "weev" Auernheimer case. He is one of the attorneys representing him in his appeal pro bono. We have one of the amicus briefs done as text here, the one by security researchers, and now let's look closely at a second amicus [PDF], this one filed by Peiter "Mudge" Zatko, C. "Space Rogue" Thomas, Dan Hirsch, Gabriella Coleman, and other prestigious professional security researchers in support of Auernheimer. This one is particularly valuable, in that it carefully explains how a server acts on the World Wide Web and points the finger of blame at AT&T, pointing out that it had the choice to make the page private, but it failed to do so, leaving it open and public to all comers. They even draw pictures, so there is no chance the court can miss the point of the tech lesson. And they ask the court to overturn his conviction, because otherwise the implications of private, ex post facto law-setting by private corporations is terrible to contemplate and may be unconstitutional: Mr. Auernheimer's conviction on charges of violating the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, 10 U.S.C. §1030, implies that his actions...

著名セキュリティ研究家らがアミカス意見書を提出: 「我々はAndrew Auernheimer と同じことをしている」 ~pj

A group of illustrious computer scientists, computer science professors, software developers, privacy researchers, professional and freelance computer security researchers, and academics have filed an amicus brief [PDF] in support of Andrew "weev" Auernheimer. They include Mozilla Foundation, Ed Felten, Matt Blaze, David L. Dill, Bruce Schneier, and Dan Kaminsky. Biographies are included in the filing for any who don't immediately recognize their names, at the very end as the attached Exhibit A. What is their concern? Security research depends on being able to do exactly the sort of thing that Auernheimer was just sent to jail for: Many Amici routinely scrutinize websites, software interfaces, electronic devices, and other computer systems for security and privacy...

Fantec: FOSS 管理への警鐘

On June 14, 2013, the district court of Hamburg found that Fantec violated the obligation in the GPLv2 to provide to its customers the “complete corresponding source code” of the software http://www.ifross.org/publikation/lg-hamburg-az-308-o-1013. The decision is one of the first to deal with this obligation to provide source code but the facts limit its value. For example, the damages are based on the breach of a prior cease and desist declaration between Welte and Fantec in which Fantec agreed not to violate the GPLv2. However, it does provide important guidance on how to manage FOSS compliance and the limits of delegation of these obligations. Fantec, a European company, distributed a media player with a Linux-based firmware inside. Like many companies, Fantec used software from third parties. The firmware of the media player included the “netfilter/iptables” software which is licensed under the GPLv2. Fantec provided a version of the source code of the firmware for download that they had received from their Chinese manufacturer. Harald Welte is one of the authors of the “netfilter/iptables” software and has brought suit a number of times to enforce the GPLv2 for this software. Ironically, Welte had settled a prior violation by Fantec with respect to...
