EMI May Allow DRM Review

“The EMI Group is reviewing a request by the Electronic Frontier Foundation to allow reverse engineering of its digital rights management software, EMI said on Friday.

“The EFF, a digital rights group, sent an open letter to EMI earlier this month asking the company to publicly declare that it would not take any legal action against independent computer security researchers who investigate copy-restriction technologies used on EMI CDs.

“A spokesman for EMI told ZDNet UK that the company had received the letter and was reviewing the matter.”
