Is Oracle Using Computer Crime Law to Squelch Competition?

This is my Wired News column from last Wednesday.  I didn’t post it earlier because I was on vacation from work and the internet for a whole week!  But we did have to purchase the season finale of Battlestar Gallactica from iTunes.  I don’t think that breaks the internet fast, though.
Episode ten of the Austrian art, culture and politics talkshow “taugshow” is now online. The show features JD Lenzen on chemistry and rope bondage, and me, talking about hackers and the law. This circus is ably hosted by the taugshow team, including MCs Johannes Grenzfurthner and Roland Gratzer. It was filmed at the Exploratorium here in S.F. with the help of many wonderful people. Check it out.
