Crazy Norwegians come through!  Some quotations:

     The court ruled there was "no evidence" that either Johansen or
     others had used the decryption code (called DeCSS) for illegal purposes. 

and

    The court determined that it is not illegal to use the DeCSS code to
    watch DVD films obtained by legal means.
