    Norway's best known IT expert, also known as DVD Jon, has hacked encryption coding in Microsoft's Windows Media Player, opening up content broadcast for the multimedia player to alternative devices on multiple platforms. Jon Lech Johansen has reverse engineered a proprietary algorithm, which is used to wrap Media Player NSC files and ostensibly protect them from hackers sniffing for the media's source IP address, port or stream format. He has also made a decoder available.

    LOL being a Canadian living in Norway I get a kick out of this.Norway if I have my facts straight is one of the biggest users of "pirated" software. Living here for a year now I understand why,the avg. PC game costs nearly $100 US(yes I paid that much x2 for BF2 one for me and my wife). so I cant blame any of them for trying to crack this or that
