A Few Notes on the MediaDefender Job

Run for hills, run for the hills! :-) A blogging frenzy commences...

First, as everybody rejoices about the fate of MediaDefender, "the new SCO of hatred," one need to compare and contrast this story with the "old" WJS saga (e.g. see it all here).

Specifically, see this bit from WSJ-gate: "The Trick: You, too, can stay up to date on work email, using any number of consumer-oriented hand-held devices. Just set up your work email so that all your emails get forwarded to your personal email account."

and this MediaDefender-gate bit: "The emails contains information about the various tactics and technical solutions for tracking p2p users, and disrupt p2p services,” and “A special thanks to Jay Maris, for circumventing there entire email-security by forwarding all your emails to your gmail account”"

So, can the douchebags sue the WSJ and increase the level of hilarity for everyone?
