For the last few years, ShmooCon has been kindly hosting the files and archives from the legal battle known as the “DeCSS case”. While ultimately a losing battle to prevent the linking to code to avoid DVD protection, the files generated from the lawyers has yielded much amazing material. For the last few years, selective scanning of documents from the case has occurred during ShmooCon and the process of scanning in these files will continue in 2016. Stop by and help – It’ll be fun, promise!
All the scanned documentation will immediately be uploaded to the Internet Archive, for all to peruse. It’s your chance to watch history go online. This event is hosted by Jason Scott and Goekesmi, who will be on hand to oversee the proceedings.
