The Justice Department said the case is the first criminal conviction in California and the second in the United States under the DMCA. In the second case, a modified chip was used to circumvent software security schemes and allow Sony's PlayStation to play unauthorized copies of computer games, the Justice Department said. The conviction comes as Hollywood and electronics manufacturers are beefing up copy-protection schemes to thwart online film pirates. The Video Watermarking (VWM) Group--a coalition of consumer-electronics companies that includes Hitachi, Macrovision, NEC, Philips Electronics, Pioneer and Sony--aims to create a system that places a unique bit of code into a video file, making it difficult to copy or play without permission from copyright holders.
What's interesting is that the news submission came from Nintendo (yes, I double checked).
