Op. Ed. by esteemed Professor of Copyright, Lawerence Lessig:

"America is essentially alone in this strategy of techno-lawmaking. Most
nations in the world - including, importantly for Mr. Sklyarov, Russia -
regulate copyright violations through copyright law, not through laws aimed
at code writers. But what the Sklyarov case means is that this controversial
experiment in the United States now essentially regulates the world. If you
produce and distribute code that cracks technological protection systems,
and that code can be accessed in the United States, then it's just a matter
of time before our F.B.I. comes knocking at your door.
