The ludicrous legal bitTheAACSLA threatend several sites with takedown orders for hosting this number. The result ? it became the new DeCSS and spawned millions of pages like this. The AACSLA then tried to stop Digg from mentioning it , they initialy complied with this and then a massive revolt amongst its users forced the code back on to the page by sheer weight of numbers. Digg then capitulated and then rather admirably vowed to go down fighting ! so help rub more poo in the AACSLA's face by posting the code on your blog and digg'ing blogs that do.
