Dutch DRM-breaker turns himself in to test the limits of fair use. This should be interesting...

"In my media center I have digital copies of my legally purchased DVD movies,” he writes in his confession. “Overall, I suppose I’ve made digital copies of approx. 100 films and 10 seasons of TV series,” he added.

It's always heartening to see everyday folks like you and me stand up to big media.

Not to diminish Mr. Andersen's bravery or anything, but he does at least have his country's copyright law on his side... kinda. Read on for this sordid tale of Danish bureaucracy. Maybe it rings true for your government as well?
