U.S. Supreme Court lifts DeCSS stay, Texan cannot be tried in California

As a followup to yesterday’s story, the U.S. Supreme Court has lifted its temporary stay on the California Supreme Court’s ruling that Texas resident Matthew Pavlovich cannot be tried in California.

This is wonderful news for everyone but the DVD CCA, and will have a huge impact going forward since all but one of the 500+ defendents in this DeCSS case are outside of California. [via /.] | EFF media advisory | InfoWorld story
