Jon Johansen acquitted

Jon Johansen has been acquitted of all charges.

Judge Irene Sogn ruled that there was “no evidence” that either Johansen or others had used the decryption code (DeCSS) illegally, Aftenposten reports. Judge Sogn dismissed prosecution arguments that Johansen intended to aid and abet DVD piracy.

What with this and Skylarov’s similar acquittal, could this be a wind change for Big Media?
