Hi all,

«Without that evidentiary basis, there's no way to know you need self-help
measures, nor is there any way to convince regulators to take action,»

Cory Doctorow nice article (as usual)
explains us why Yale Privacy Lab [1] and Exodus Privacy [2] **cannot** give
the world scietific evidences that similar spyware is **likely** (there are
rumors) also distributed in similar iOS apps

«iOS is DRM-locked and it's a felony -- punishable by a 5-year prison
sentence and a $500,000 fine for a first offense in the USA under DMCA 1201,
and similar provisions of Article 6 of the EUCD in France where Exodus is
located -- to distribute tools that bypass this DRM, even for the essential
work of discovering whether billions of people are at risk due to covert
spying from the platform.»

I believe this is another strong evidence to offer to the EU Council and
Parliament to review EUCD and never again permit _code_ like DRM to **become
the judge** of what can and cannot be done with digital works 

could be this one oincluded in a _curated_ section of "evidences" in
http://drm.info ?
