10/22/2003 Archived Entry: "Students and civil disobedience against Diebold's faulty e-voting machines"

DIEBOLD KNEW YEARS AGO THAT ITS ELECTRONIC VOTING MACHINES WERE FAULTY. It marketed them anyway. Now it's using the Digital Millennium Copyright Act to try to prevent Swarthmore students from publishing company memos revealing those facts.

Yeah, the memos were stolen. Just like the Pentgon Papers were stolen. They needed to be stolen -- and revealed. Has there ever been a use of the dreadful DMCA that wasn't some sort of corporate power grab or attempt to silence critics?
