Re: [vox] Demonstration against Adobe

Yeah, he and his associate's e-book presentation at the Con for
circumventing a variety of "cryptographic" locking systems with PDF files
was rather good with lots of good info. (Cryptographic in double quotes
since the presentation showed how many of the schemes were very weak to
begin with.)

One of my associates commented about it this way:

"A man comes from *Russia* where we have been led to believe freedoms are
lacking - especially in the realm of speech, and upon arrival to the
United State where we advertise "Freedom of Speech," he is detained for
his presentation on things done out of U.S. jurrisdiction."

What I would like to see is a lawsuit filed against Adobe for $3 trillion
dollars. Why? Adobe is seeking to destroy his business with this legal
process. A winning case for $3 trillion dollars would effectively put
adobe out of business too. Maybe even make it an open case for lawyers to
keep all of the proceeds from the trial. There would not be a short list
of talented people willing to work on it - especially with such a large
sum of money as the reward and liquidation of the company's assets.
