Jon Lech Johansen (jlj) writes "The National Authority for Investigation and Prosecution of Economic and Environmental Crime in Norway raided my home today and seized my Linux box, FreeBSD/Win2k box and Nokia cellphone. Not only I, but also my father has been indicted, since he owns the mmadb.no domain (webhotel) where my homepage(s) have been located. They also took me in for questioning which lasted 6-7 hours. It's 2 am CET now (I just got back), I haven't eaten, and someone's definitely going to pay for this. I have shut down my old email account, and I'm now using email@example.com - More information coming tomorrow, once I've talked to my lawyer. Did someone whisper countersuit?"
I didn't know you could play DVD movies on a Nokia cellphone. Boy, I bet the MPAA is glad the Norwegian authorities seized that dangerous piece of equipment. ------- End of forwarded message -------
