Subject:        	"Emergency" hearing in DVD CCA case to seal exhibit

According to slashdot.org, the lawyers for the DVD CCA have requested
an emergency hearing this morning (Wednesday) at 8:30am for the
purpose of sealing an exhibit they previously submitted to the court. 
Its the portion jya posted on his website containing the decryption
code for DVDs.

If the New York Times had published the exhibit, would it be any
different than if cryptome published it?  I know justice is supposed
to be blind, but I'm having a hard time understanding how you can
argue in good faith the exhibit should be sealed now.
