Yet another DRM technology has been cracked. What a surprise.

What makes this particular story interesting, though, is the way Digg reacted to the code being posted to their site and how quickly and widely has the code spread all over the web. Digg has at first complied with the cease and desist letter by MPAA and started removing posts with the offending code and banning users that posted it. What forced a complete turn around in digg's attitude was the pressure of its own userbase which kept posting about the issue on and on. Digg couldn't just delete all stories that have been been submitted so they buckled, while being full aware that they're putting themselves in the immediate legal risk.
