My point is that the Law could be broadly worded, such that the "device"
could reasonably be applied to a Personal Computer.

In other word, the decss package *could* be considered illegal in Singapore
(just like in US), because it's enable circumvention of the DVD access
control.

My personal opinion: in practice, Singapore is a very pro-business country.
It is very likely that anything we do in this matter that would be
detrimental to "business" would get us into trouble.

Chew
