    That is like Microsoft telling us if you want a upgrade your hard drive to
    something larger than what hardware mfg has given or is willing to give you
    and you want a duel boot your original license you cant. Microsoft sure did
    get I hot water when they tried it so what Aamap is doing software mfg's get
    in trouble for... I want 8+ gig of storage and a Linux OS on MY hardware I
    purchased, But I still want to keep the Avmap map data I paid for! There is
    no license agreement with in the unit, with the unit, or displayed on the
    unit! No agreement in the manual or packaged with the unit in it's
    paperwork.

    Reverse engineering for knowledge is not illegal...that I am aware of. Now
    if I was, which I am not! make the data base public with A broken copy
    protection included then that is a different story.

    I am just learning how to upgrade hardware and keep and load the data I
    already purchased and how to modify that data to make it better for my own
    personal use. It happens all there time in the Linux environment to run
    software not intended for the Linux OS.

    Also reposting all because it did not post to the Linux groups and missing a
    message or 2?

    This Little machine and it's platform is capable of so much with linux
    embeded lots of versions out there to pick but if I an unable to keep get to
    keep the original os i am not going to bother!

    Nope, you bought a complete system from Avmap, not a pile of software.

    It would be more like Apple telling you what hardware to use.

    But all that is moot and totally irrelevant.

    The mere act of breaking copy protection is a crime under DMCA.

    Just breaking copy protection, no matter what you do with the stuff
    afterwards, is illegal.

    Providing tools or instructions on how to break copy protection is illegal.

    All the rest of your post is just rationalization.

    Just about anyone can initiate an indictment against you for violating
    DMCA; it doesn't have to be Avmap.

    You are an idiot for posting this to the world.

    Breaking the encryption for the purpose of interoperability is not
    illegal under the US DMCA. In fact, the DMCA has specific wording to
    explicitly say that breaking protection measures for interoperability
    is allowed.

    IANAL...

    Doesn't the wording of the DMCA also say that the "technical protection
    methods" have to be effective to be relevant? Thus trivial or
    easily-broken protection (such as on DVDs) does not fall under the DMCA,
    not matter what the MPAA might think.

    Also note that the DMCA only applies to the USA, not the rest of the world.

    And is breaking the DMCA actually a crime, even in the USA? Unlicensed
    copying of copyrighted works is not a crime in most of the free world,
    unless it is done for commercial gain, or has other incriminating
    circumstances. It is unlawful, but not criminal - the copyright owners
    can sue you for damages, but you cannot be jailed by the state.

    Note that DMCA is based on WIPO treaties which includes most of the
    first world.

    The equivalant in Europe is the EU Copyright Directive and Electronic
    Commerce Directive as implemented by various nations.

    The big issue here is not copying for personal use, but breaking copy
    protection.

    And yes, it is a crime.

    Now, all you barracks lawyers can jump up and down and scream "You
    can't do that!" all you want, but if you get indicted you are in
    for a long, expensive legal battle as Dmitry Sklyarov found out
    the hard way.

    Personally I think DMCA is bad law, but I also think publicly flaunting
    the law is a real bad idea unless you have really deep pockets and are
    looking to be a test case for reform.
