NET INFORMATION ABOUT THE JON JOHANSEN (“DVD JON”) CASE

Jon Lech Johansen

The autumn of 1999 Jon Lech Johansen (“DVD Jon”) with others decrypted the copy control system on DVD records to make it possible to view the DVDs at the Linux operating system. The program that made this possible was called “DeCSS” and released on the Internet. This resulted in him being sued by DVD Copy Control Association in USA, arrested by Norwegian police and charged by The Norwegian National Authority for Investigation and Prosecution of Economic and Environmental Crime (ØKOKRIM).

The case has been heavily written about all over the world, and this page contains links to a great deal of these. It contains only links to articles in English, if you want to read the complete list with links to documents in other languages, please visit the original Jon Johansen page.
