While I have a small sliver of hope that the president will not accept the copyright law that the parliament just passed, I’m a realist and will just have to accept it. The law has some good changes compared to the old law, but it is filled with too many weakenings of consumer rights and against the basic rights of people as noted in the Finnish constitution that I’m very sad that a law like this can be passed.
But, my criminal acts to date are: copying copy-protected music from CDs to MP3, publishing guides on how to print protected PDF documents, and how to rip DVD audio into MP3. Both guides tell you how to circumvent copy-protection and are thus illegal. I will hold on to my rights as a consumer and Finnish citizen and will fight against it — even if only by civil disobedience.
