More details on the SDMI thing: the rules of the contest included a “no publishing clause. The Princeton research team did not participate in the contest. Apparently, the SDMI greedheads are arguing that by clicking through on an agreement to download the sample files used in the contest, the Princeton team implicitly agreed to the rules of the contest, despite the fact that they did not participate. This could end up being the case that does away with clickthrough agreements altogether (if we’re lucky).
