I'm not considering Palladium here, just TCPA.

The idea is to spread sufficient kernel diversity that it's
impractical for anyone to perpetrate any DRM scheme that depends
on knowing the exact content of someone else's computer's kernel.

Don Marti                  Even if we don't get DMCA reform, loudly
http://zgp.org/~dmarti     demanding DMCA reform is going to get the
dmarti@zgp.org             injustice of the DMCA in front of the next
KG6INA                     jury.  Make noise.  It counts.
