Showing that the Digital Millenium Copyright Act really is good for anything a copyright holder would ever want to use against an unsuspecting web citizen, game publisher Tecmo sued several Florida website operators. The accused allegedly violated the DMCA by distributing code that took the bikinis of players in Tecmo's game: Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball, according to a Cnet report.
Although you could argue about the lack of good taste behind the group's decision to undress the players, Tecmo's attempt to muzzle the hackers might very well violate freedom of expression rights.
Unfortunately it's unlikely that we will ever find out now that the lawyers are in charge. They after all are interested more in a quick settlement than actual justice.
