After someone cracks the CSS encryption on DVDs don’t you think it would be a good idea to hire the guy? Maybe after he broke the encryption on the iTunes music store? Well if someone doesn’t scoop this guy up after he cracks Google’s video viewer then they have just lost it.
Instead of trying to fight these types of people they should be embracing them. Hell, if I had the money I would do it.
Jon Lech Johansen, also known as DVD Jon, posted software on his “So Sue Me” Web site that he says modifies the viewer so that it plays videos hosted on any server. The company’s Google Video Viewer, in turn, was modified from the free VLC media player to restrict it to playing video hosted on Google’s own servers.
