Add to your props, Don, but who's this Eric guy?

    Others suggest that hackers should refuse to rise to the challenge
    on principle.  Writing in the Linux Journal, one programmer, Don
    Marti, called upon his fellows to boycott the contest rather than do
    SDMI's dirty work for it by offering what is, in effect, free
    consulting. And many hackers, including Eric Raymond, the guru of
    open-source software, object to helping this particular enemy on the
    grounds that if SDMI succeeds, it will prevent legitimate "fair use"
    copying of music as well as preventing piracy.
