DVD Jon to license iPod code

Posted on Saturday, October 28 2006 @ 08:20:13 CEST by

Famous hacker John Lech Johansen, better known as DVD Jon, claims to have cracked the code that Apple uses to tie iTunes file exclusively to iPod players:
He has typically posted license-circumventing codes on the Internet free of charge, having most infamously release a software system that scrambled DVD licensing codes when he was 15. Seven years later, it seems the young techie has caught the capitalist bug.

Johansen intends to license the code to media distribution companies, allowing their songs and videos to by-pass the iTunes online store, but still be played on an iPod.

DoubleTwist Ventures, a tiny, San Francisco-based company which Johansen joined in June of this year, told The Associated Press that an unnamed client was already due to use the technology.
