Is Adobe the Bad Guy here though? Laws like this have to be shown to be
bad *somehow*, the more dramastically(*), the better. Sending in the
gestapo to arrest a Russian speaker at an American conference seems pretty
darn dramastic. If one had wanted to shock people into just how wrong this
dmca is, could one have choreographed a better demonstration?
Huge bummer for Mr Skylarov, though. :-(
(*) Drastically and dramatically.
