HP Makes Perens Bail Out On "Illegal" Demonstration
from the be-a-good-employee-now dept
Earlier this week, we mentioned that Bruce Perens was planning to purposely violate the DMCA tomorrow to draw some attention to how stupid the law was. The news of that bit of civil disobedience spread pretty widely, very quickly. It spread to some of his higher ups at his employer, HP, and they've told him not to do the demonstration because they don't want to deal with the legal consequences. Chilling effects? Seems like it.
